Following the announcement of Australian headline shows, it's been confirmed that Anglo/American duo The Kills will play two shows in New Zealand this July at Auckland’s Powerstation and Wellington’s Shed 6.
It’s been seven years since The Kills last played New Zealand and their highly anticipated return has been rumoured since news broke of their upcoming Australian show dates (including sold out appearances in Melbourne and at Splendour in the Grass!)
Jamie Hince (guitar/vox) and Alison Mosshart (vox/guitar) return to New Zealand this winter in support of their upcoming fifth album, Ash & Ice, set for release on Friday 3 June via Domino Recording Co. The pair recently unveiled a hot new single – the snarling, electric ‘Heart Of A Dog’ – the second taste from Ace & Ice, with lead single ‘Doing It To Death’ also on the airwaves.
The Kills bristle with tension, anxiety, sex, and unstudied cool on tracks such as ‘No Wow’, ‘U R A Fever’, ‘Satellite’ and ‘Future Starts Slow’. Currently performing sold-out shows in the USA as part of their 2016 major world tour – which included slaying it at the world’s hottest festival, Coachella, their visit down under promises to be one to remember.
