The Kills Announce Winter Tour Dates, Playing NYC’s Terminal 5 To Celebrate 10th Anniversary

UK duo The Kills (Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart) will be returning to North America with dates in January and February 2012. The tour will be making stops at Chicago’s Rivera, Austin’s Stubbs, DC’s 9:30 Club and will culminate in their return to NYC’s Terminal 5 for the band’s 10th anniversary, which they’ll celebrate with a special show for the occasion. Jeff the Brotherhood and Hunters will join them on all dates. Ticket presale begins today at 3:00 PM local time to each venue. To purchase, click HERE.

The band is currently on tour in South America and will be touring in Europe from early November. The band recently played David Lynch’s Club Silencio in Paris, performed electrifying sets at Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot and have appeared on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Last Call with Carson Daly in support of their latest offering, Blood Pressures (Domino). Ten years in, the band are at the peak of their powers, with one of the most stunning live shows of any contemporary rock band.

The Kills have released a new video for their track “Baby Says,” directed by Ben Crook. The video’s style is reminiscent of Almadovar meets Wong Kar Wai; a heartbreaking look at a man living in one of Barcelona’s subcultures. Watch “Baby Says” HERE

The Kills are partnering with indie record stores for Black Friday (November 25) by offering an exclusive limited-edition postcard flexi disc single of “The Last Goodbye” with any purchase at participating stores while supplies last.

Praise for The Kills Live Shows:

“Singer Alison Mosshart proved yet again why she’s one of rock’s best frontwomen, convulsing across the stage with reckless abandon during recent tunes “Satellite” and “Future Starts Slow.” – SPIN

“And the duo’s lusty performances eagerly play up the ambiguity of their platonic partnership. It’s a quality that defines them as much as Mosshart’s feverish moan, Hince’s hand-slashing guitar riffs, and the synthetic beats…’” – Pitchfork

“Watching them lock into each other’s groove is a beautiful thing.” – KCRW
