Ahead of their West Coast run this summer, The Kills have expanded their tour to include new shows in Brooklyn and Philadelphia and will play a handful of festivals including the Squamish Valley Arts Festival and Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Canada. 

The band’s most recent album Blood Pressures, was released in 2011. This past year was an eventful one for The Kills, which focused on touring, festivals, as well as their passion for visual art. Jamie Hince opened “Echo Home”, an exhibit of his photographic work at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York.  In addition to Jamie’s Photography, Alison Mosshart’s original painting on paper, canvas and fabric art were included in “Push It”, a 21-person group show devoted to female artists at ArtNowNY in April—some of which featured in the New York Times T Magazine.
