International duo The Kills - aka Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince - have returned with their first new music in nearly seven years, the dual singles ‘New York’ and ‘LA Hex’ (via Domino). While the former showcases big riffs and Alison’s signature vocal delivery, the latter evokes a sonic haziness with woozy beats and distorted brass touches.

They arrive alongside accompanying videos directed by Andew Theodore Balasia, each of which epitomises the different atmospheres of the two cities: a powerhouse boxing ring for ‘New York; and an unpolished cityscape for ‘LA Hex’. Artwork for both singles comes courtesy of Alison herself, in the form of customised playing cards.

To celebrate the releases, the band have announced a double header of special US shows, featuring exclusive merch pop-ups. In New York, they will DJ at the Lower East Side studio of rock/fashion photographer Steven Sebring. Over in LA, the duo will play the city’s iconic Viper Room, then deliver a DJ set at a private party which fans can enter a competition to attend.

The Kills will play on the following dates:


27 New York, Steven Sebring’s NYC Studio


03 LA, Viper Room
