See: The Raconteurs release new video for Help Me Stranger, plus World Tour Dates

Supergroup The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, have resurfaced with a new album ‘Help Us Stranger’, out on White’s Third Man Records on June 21st. From it the band have released a new single ‘Help Me Stranger’, and details of their World Tour.

The old time blues start is just a smoke screen, soon propelled out of the way by souped up riffs, and injection of tempo. From that point on its all gravelly bass, an indie blues shuffle to kill for, and some neat vocal harmonies, all polished up by the stamp of White, which looms large over everything.

It’s release is accompanied by a video set around the bands recent shows in Tokyo, but shot in the mysterious city of Kimitsu by director/ visual effects guru Yasuhiko Shimizu. Check it out, here
