The Raconteurs frontman Brendan Brenson has confirmed that the band will tour in 2019.
“2019 is going to be an exciting year of touring with The Racs!”, Benson revealed in a post on social media.
The news comes just days after Jack White and the band released two new singles. The new tracks come as the band prepare to release their new album, the first for the band with Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler, since 2008’s Consolers of the Lonely.
The new songs, entitled ‘Sunday Driver’ and ‘Now That You’re Gone’, will be released on Wednesday as part of the double A-side album.
The latest Third Man Records’ quarterly Vault subscription series will see Consolers of the Lonely pressed on a copper foil metallic vinyl, marking the first time the double LP has been available on colored vinyl. An additional 7″ contains the two new songs, also pressed on mixed metal vinyl.
