Last week, MusicRadar reported to you exclusively about Jack White's plans for the next Whte Stripes album. Now White and the members of his 'supergroup' The Dead Weather have announced dates for their first tour - and revealed artwork for their debut album Horehound.

The band will play some one-off shows - 11 June in Louisville, Kentucky, 24 June at The Forum in London and 29 June at La Cigale in Paris - but the tour officially kicks off on the day of Horehound''s European release (13 July) release with a pair of gigs at Washington, DC's trusty 9:30 Club.

From there, the tour goes Northeast, midwest, Northwest, Southwest, until culminating at the Austin City Limits in (where else?) Austin, Texas.

Presale tickets for all Dead Weather shows go on sale this Wednesday, 13 May at The Dead Weather website.

Can't catch White and co on tour this summer? Then you might want to check out Jack (along with Jimmy Page and The Edge) in the marvelous documentary It Might Get Loud, due this August from Sony Classics.
