While currently in the studio recording their follow up to 2011's Blood Pressures, Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart will return to the US and Canada this December for a select run of tour dates including shows supporting their friends, Queens of The Stone Age. All dates are below.
They've also recently shared a live concert film shot in Paris in 2011. Here is the story:
On November 12th 2011, The Kills played the first of two sold out shows at the prestigious L'Olympia Theatre in Paris. Three thousand tickets a night had been sold. After coming off stage at one of the wildest shows of their career, Jamie and Alison turned to each other and said – "we have to film tomorrow night's show!"
Overnight, the call was put out via Facebook, asking if anyone would come and film the second show for them. At soundcheck the next day, Sunday. November 13th 2011, a group of friends and fans assembled to capture that night's equally stunning show for posterity.
Director Anita Ribeyrol, along with editors Olivier Aslanian and Sylvain Calves then assembled the footage into the raw, sweat drenched concert movie that The Kills are proud to launch exclusively in partnership with Equipment.
Watch 'Tape Song', 'F*** The People', and view the entire concert at The Kills YouTube channel or at the Equipment Vimeo channel.
