The new single, entitled ‘Baby Says’ is released on Domino Records on October 24th. The Kills also play a few(see below) in October and their biggest show to date on the 3rd of December at the Brixton Academy.
‘Baby Says’ is the third single to come from the duo’s critically acclaimed fourth LP‘Blood Pressures’, and effortlessly showcases the band’s trademark sound. Melting a sweetly growling tremolo guitar with Alison’s nostalgia-drenched vocals, this is a timeless and sultry track taken from an equally indelible album.
Details on the official video for ‘Baby Says’ are to be released shortly. Press play to see an acoustic version of the track recorded earlier this year by acclaimed film makers ThirtyTwo.
The Kills have also confirmed their biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Brixton Academy on December 3rd. The show comes after a sell-out show at Camden’s Roundhouse earlier this year, a headline US tour and numerous festivals throughout the summer including Coachella, Lollapalooza , Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds. The band will also be playing Brighton’s Concorde 2 on October 14th and performing as special guests of The Horrors as part of the Warehouse Project on October 15th. Full info below.
A fan pre-sale will be available from 9am on Wednesday 7th September at www.artistarena.uk.com/thekills/. Tickets will be put on general sale from Friday 9th September.
‘Blood Pressures’, released earlier this year, finds The Kills delivering their vivid and uniquely gritty post-blues, but with a new level of thoughtfulness and depth not yet explored by the duo. An album tinged with wistfulness and vulnerability, it has an enduring sense of intricacy and richness that intensely blends with their ever-compelling songwriting.
