Fresh off the announcement of their new album Help Us Stranger (out June 21 on Third Man Records), The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – have announced North American headline tour dates. With stops including US festival appearances at Woodstock 50 and Railbird, the band will kick off their world tour in Australia and come through Charlotte on August 18.

Help Us Stranger is the Grammy Award-winning rock band’s third studio LP and first new album in more than a decade. The Raconteurs will make their much-needed return, creating a sound and fury only possible when all four of its members are together.

Tickets to the North American headline dates go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. Third Man Records Vault members will have access to the very first pre-sale starting on Tuesday, April 9 at 10 a.m.

Additionally, every online ticket purchased in North America for the new headline shows will include a physical copy of Help Us Stranger on CD. Fans will also have the option to upgrade their CD to the standard black vinyl LP.
