The Raconteurs Unveil New Album 'Help Us Stranger'

The Raconteurs - Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler - have officially released their long awaited new album, HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records). The GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band's third studio LP and first new album in more than a decade is available everywhere now.

Last night, The Raconteurs welcomed the new album in to the world with the first of an unprecedented two-night stand on CBS' Late Show with Stephen Colbert, performing a blazing live rendition of new single "Help Me Stranger." The band returns to the Ed Sullivan Theater this evening for a live performance of "Bored and Razed," airing tonight on CBS at 11:35 pm ET/PT (check local listings).

Continuing the celebration, two special independent record store in-store performances have also been announced for release week - Rough Trade NYC will take place today, Friday, June 21 at 3pm while Amoeba Music Hollywood will host the band on Wednesday, June 26 at 5pm. Not stopping there, The Raconteurs will expand their NYC takeover even further with two club shows this weekend - Baby's All Right will take place on Saturday, June 22 at 8:30pm and a Coney Island Baby Sunday matinee show will start at 3:30pm on June 23. Tickets to these performances will be available to Third Man Records Vault Members and TIDAL subscribers. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the doors for each show for $20 cash.

The Raconteurs are heralding HELP US STRANGER with an epic world tour - North American dates get underway July 4 and 5 with a two-night-stand at Aspen, CO's Belly Up Tavern. Due to popular demand, additional dates have been added in a number of major markets, including Detroit, Vancouver, New York, and Nashville. For complete details and ticket availability, please visit theraconteurs.com/tour. Every online ticket purchased in North America for the upcoming headline shows will include a physical copy of HELP US STRANGER on CD.
