The Kills’ Alison Mosshart on Possible Dead Weather Reunion: ‘Maybe Someday’

Alison Mosshart has spoken about the possibility of The Dead Weather coming back in the future.

The American supergroup – which also includes Jack White, Dean Fertita (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) – released their debut album “Horehound” in 2009.

Since then, they have released two more full-length albums – “Sea Of Cowards” (2010) and “Dodge And Burn” (2015) – among the members’ respective other projects, including Mosshart’s band The Kills.

During a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, Mosshart was asked if a Dead Weather reunion was possible: “Your opinion is as good as mine,” he replied.

“The band was a happy accident. We walked into Jack’s new recording studio to test the room and equipment, and came out with a full record in the blink of an eye. It was really shit, what did we just do? do?'”.

The singer described the process of creating “Horehound” as “very magical”.

“We had no plan or desire to form a band, but we just seemed to be influenced by the music,” explained Mosshart. “Maybe one day we will all be home at the same time and get together to do something again.”

“It has to be magical again. It has to feel good.”

Speaking about the possibility of a Dead Weather comeback in 2017, Mosshart said that each member of the band was “a bit tied up” with other projects.

In December 2020, he told NME: “Suddenly we’ll be in the city of Nashville at the same time [en algún momento], so let’s go to the studio and do something. It hasn’t been like that for a number of years.”

The Kills are believed to be currently working on their 2016 album ‘Ash & Ice’. Last month the duo – rounded out by Jamie Hince – returned to the stage for their first live performances since 2019.

During an interview with NME in December 2020, Hince explained that the pair “wanted to do something really exciting” with their next album.

“I wanted to focus on singing,” he said, “I didn’t want to limit the songs by going on guitar and doing my own thing. I was writing without a guitar a lot, to throw the songs in . another direction.”

Meanwhile, Jack White will perform a personal show at London’s Union Chapel tonight (July 22nd) to mark the release of his new album “Entering Heaven Alive”. The album follows in the footsteps of its sister LP “Fear Of The Dawn”, which came out in April.

Tomorrow (July 23), White will head to the new London branch of his own label Third Man Records to play three separate sets at the store’s Blue Basement at 3pm, 3.30pm and 4pm.
