Jack White wrapped up The White Stripes earlier this year, but he’s still busy with The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs, who’ve announced a return to the stage after two years for the MI Festival in Michigan.

Don’t call it a comeback, however. With no plans for a new release in sight, today Last.fm Trends is looking at the band’s scrobbles to see how taking it easy is going for them.

The graph above shows their scrobbles over the past year, in comparison to White’s previous band. The split of The White Stripes created a big jump in listeners, but there’s no such ups and downs for The Raconteurs. With little gain in popularity but no loss either, it seems fans will still be there for them when they take to the stage.

Four out of five of their top tracks are from their second and latest album, suggesting that fans aren’t too attached to the past and would enjoy new material from the band – but they may have to wait a long while until any appears.
