The Kills most recent album Blood Pressures, was released in 2011 on Domino Records. The album saw Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart deliver their vivid and uniquely gritty post-blues, but with a new level of thoughtfulness and depth not yet explored by the duo. Tinged with wistfulness and vulnerability, Blood Pressures has an enduring sense of intricacy and richness that intensely blends with their ever-compelling songwriting.

 

The band has been busy in 2014 exploring their other passion- visual arts. In June, Jamie opened “Echo Home“, an exhibit of his photographic work at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York. PRESS HERE to his see some of his images featured on Du Jour.  Several of Alison’s original paintings on paper, canvas and fabric art were included in “Push It,” a 21-person group show devoted to female artists at ArtNowNY in April. PRESS HERE to learn more about the exhibit and see some of the paintings featured in the New York Times T Magazine.
