The Raconteurs Share Riff-Heavy New Single 'Bored & Razed'

By Katrina Nattress

June 12, 2019

As the release date for HELP US STRANGER creeps closer, The Raconteurs have given us another taste of what to expect from their first album in a decade. "Bored & Razed" is a riff-heavy, Jack White-led romp that shows the quartet hone in on its rock prowess and prove that the genre certainly is not dead.

"Bored & Dazed" is the fifth offering off the upcoming album, following "Help Me Stranger," the band's cover of Donovan's "Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)," "Sunday Driver" and "Now That You're Gone."

HELP US STRANGER is slated for a June 21 release. Watch the "Bored & Razed" lyric video below.

The Raconteurs will be celebrating their comeback album with an iHeartRadio-hosted album release party on June 24. Check out how you can livestream the event here.

The band has been touring the world to celebrate its reunion and is gearing up to embark on a North American jaunt next month. Check out their full list of dates below.
