The Dead Weather were formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2009. Consisting of The White Stripes' Jack White in drums, The Kills' Alison Mosshart in vocal, The Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence in bass and Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertita in guitar, they debuted their performance in a private party at the headquarters of the Third Man Records.
They got together when doing an impromptu jam at the Third Man studios. The session was then followed by two and a half weeks of song writing and recording. A couple of songs were created from the session and they decided to debut a full-length album as a side project.
