MAN! Is it your lucky day or what! When I saw what Child Star had waiting for me today, I almost flipped... THE NEW RACONTEURS ALBUM!
For those of you that don't know, The Raconteurs is a rock and roll supergroup featuring the songwriting of Jack White of The White Stripes and Brendan Benson. In their own words they are "a new band made up of old friends."
The full band consists of:
- Jack White (of The White Stripes) - vocals, guitars, keyboards
- Brendan Benson - vocals, guitars, keyboards
- Jack Lawrence (of The Greenhornes and Blanche) - bass guitar
- Patrick Keeler (of The Greenhornes) - drums
"The Raconteurs' full-length debut, titled Broken Boy Soldiers, will be released on May 15, 2006 in the UK and May 16 in the US.
The album will be released on via Third Man Recordings/XL Recordings in the UK, and through Third Man Recordings/V2 Records in the US. Early listeners to the album have compared it to Nirvana's Nevermind album.
A version of Broken Boy Soldiers leaked onto the Internet on April 2nd, more than a month ahead of its release."
