#32. The Kills
The Kills are an indie rock duo consisting of vocalist Alison Mosshart and guitarist Jamie Hince. The cigarette lovers have been around since 2000, and have released four studio albums. Their fifth album Ash & Ice is due out on June 3, it’s the follow-up to 2011′s Blood Pressures.
If I hadn’t already seen the band a few times, they probably would’ve landed higher on my list.
Here’s a few fun facts about Ms. Mosshart: She’s a member of the band The Dead Weather and uses the stage name VV. There’s that V again, what is it with the letter V these days?
If things work out with the set times, I look forward to checking out what The Kills are up to now. Sirius XMU currently has the new tune “Doing It To Death” is heavy rotation, and it sounds really good. Speaking of good, my favorite Kills tune is “The Good Ones,” I hope they play both of those tunes in The Polo Fields, if not, I’ll settle for the vids below.
This will be The Kills’ fourth Coachella appearance, the band also performed in 2005, 2009 & 2011.
