The Raconteurs formed in 2005, made up of old friends and former bandmates Jack White (of the White Stripes), Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler. White and Benson had been collaborating on the single “Steady, As She Goes” when an idea to start the band was sparked, with the two recruiting Lawrence and Keeler to fill out the lineup shortly after. The track would become their debut single in 2006, earning the quartet a Grammy nod in 2007 and hitting the charts in both the US and UK. Broken Boy Soldiers, their debut album, arrived in the summer of 2006, followed by their Grammy-winning sophomore effort Consolers of the Lonely in 2008. The group entered a recording hiatus following the release of their second album, with all four members focusing on other projects for several years. They had a world tour and the release of their third album Help Us Stranger in April 2019.
