The 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., is ground zero for a blistering assault of explosive riff-rock, courtesy of The Dead Weather, in this full concert webcast live on NPR Music. The newly formed band is a supergroup featuring members of The White Stripes and The Kills.

The Dead Weather is on tour to support its debut album, the ominously titled Horehound. It's a dark, swampy collection of blues-infused rock songs that sound as heavy as you might expect, given the artists behind them. The Dead Weather features White Stripes frontman Jack White on drums, The Kills singer Alison Mosshart on vocals, The Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence on bass and Dean Fertita, from Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs, on guitar.

The Dead Weather formed toward the end of a recent tour for The Kills and The Raconteurs. Jack White, who also plays in The Raconteurs, had lost his voice to bronchitis and asked Mosshart to take over on vocals. The two loved the energy they had together — as well as the new sound Mosshart brought to The Raconteurs' songs — so they decided to record a seven-inch single together. After pulling Fertita in on the project, The Dead Weather spawned a two-week studio session in Nashville, Tenn., and a full-length album.

Horehound is out on Jack White's Third Man Records label, the same imprint behind The White Stripes and The Raconteurs.
