**Update: This album is now set to be released in October. More details here.
Dead Weather and Raconteurs bassist “Little” Jack Lawrence has been Jack White’s right-hand man for the past half-decade, but LJ’s other band, Cincinnati’s the Greenhornes, are now regrouping for the release of their forthcoming fifth album, the trio’s first since the Raconteurs formed back in ‘05.
“It’s finished,” Lawrence told SF Weekly of the new record he made with frontman Craig Fox and (fellow Raconteur) drummer Patrick Keeler. “We’re trying to get it out this summer hopefully. We’re getting a couple shows lined up too. There’s already one that we’re going to do in New York.”
Meanwhile, Keeler and Brendan Benson, aka half of the Raconteurs, performed this weekend as the Racontwoers at Jack White’s Third Man headquarters to celebrate Record Store Day. LJ played a pretty cool gig over the weekend too.
