Recommended Posts

The Kills is a rock band formed by American singer Alison Mosshart ("VV") and British guitarist Jamie Hince ("Hotel").

The Kills debuted in 2002 with the “Black Rooster” EP, released on Domino Records. The duo's debut full-length album, “Keep on Your Mean Side,” was released the following year. The album peaked at #47 on the U.K. Albums chart, while the single "Fried my Little Brains" peaked at #55 on the UK Singles chart.

The Kills followed up with “No Wow” in 2005 which was the first of the group's releases to chart in the United States, peaking at #18 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers Albums chart. “No Wow” also charted in the U.K., Belgium, France, and the Netherlands.

“Midnight Boom,” released in 2008, was again released by Domino. “Midnight Boom” charted in a total of nine countries, including the album's first appearance on the Billboard 200 Albums chart at #133. It also reached #16 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. The album was preceded with a website, also titled Midnight Boom, dedicated to the videos and multi-tracks for "U.R.A. Fever," "Cheap and Cheerful" and "Last Day of Magic." "Tape Song" and "Black Balloon" served as follow-up singles.

In 2011 they released their fourth LP, “Blood Pressures” which was their first Top 40 album in the U.S., reaching #37 on the Billboard 200. It also went to #40 on the U.K. Albums chart. The album was recorded at Key Club studio in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the same studio where the band had previously recorded both “No Wow” and “Midnight Boom.”
