In support of their forthcoming photo book, Dream and Drive shot by Kenneth Cappello, London-based duo The Kills (Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart) will be showcasing their favorite snapshots captured in the book in an exhibit at New York City’s MILK Studios. The public exhibit will run from August 17th thru August 19th. The Kills will also be signing copies of Dream and Drive at Marc Jacobs’ specialty bookstore BookMarc at locations in Los Angeles on August 10th and in New York City on August 18th. Dream and Drive documents over nine years of the band’s career and captures Alison and Jamie in their most playful, private, intense and intimate moments, both on stage and off as they conquer the world one stage and city at a time. Dream and Drive will be released on September 4th in the US and Canada (August 16th in all other territories) and will be sold at select record and book stores; pre-order HERE.
The Kills will return to New York City for a free performance at City Carnage, hosted by Converse, on Saturday, August 18th at Hudson River Park. Tickets are available at Converse Soho and Garden State Plaza retail locations and The Bowery Presents web site from Friday, June 22nd at noon EST. Throughout the summer, the band will be performing at a number of European festivals and select US dates – full list of tour dates are below.
Jamie and Alison are excited to announce they will be a part of Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, with their rendition of “Dreams.” Set for release on August 14th via Hear Music/Control Records, the striking 17-track collection of Fleetwood Mac covers features an all-star tracklisting, including famously covered songs as well as lesser known tracks.
