While White Stripes were dormant, White formed The Raconteurs in 2005 with Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler. The band were born from White's creative sessions with Benson. Their first album "Broken Boy Soldiers" was released in 2006 with "Steady, As She Goes/Store Bought Bones" as first single. They went on tour and released another album, the Grammy-nominated "Consolers of the Lonely", in 2008. After completing a U.S. tour in summer that year, the band went in vacuum due to the members' commitment to other projects.
White then began performing with The Kills' Alison Mosshart under the moniker The Dead Weather in 2009.
