WATCH THE VIDEO FOR THE KILLS' 'HEART OF A DOG'

The Kills | 04/19/16

The Kills have unveiled the second music video from their highly anticipated fifth album, Ash & Ice. Heart Of A Dog” premiered on the Coachella festival live stream immediately before the band’s blistering energetic performance on Friday evening. The video was directed by Sophie Muller who has worked with the band in the past (“U.R.A Fever,” “Cheap and Cheerful,” “Last Days of Magic” and “Satellite”). Ash & Ice will be released on June 3rd through Domino.

The band adds: We are very very especially pleased to release our new music video for “Heart of A Dog!” It was shot all day and into the night in Los Angeles by our dear friend, the tremendous talent, Sophie Muller. We love this video. We love it because it’s fucking fun. Muscle cars and backflips. Palms trees and cacti. Dogs and dice. Neon and sunshine. We hope you love it as much as we do. VROOM VROOM. Love, The Kills. 

Over their almost decade-and-a-half career, The Kills have released four records. Each one a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement that bristled with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui, yet not one of them sounded like the previous one. Ash & Ice is the follow up to 2011’s critically lauded Blood Pressures and was five years in the making. 

The Kills’ forthcoming European run in May is now sold out.  The band will be returning in the autumn, for shows including London’s Roundhouse on the 7th of October  - general on-sale for the new dates is on Friday at 10am CET. All dates are listed below.

"Truly transformative dance pop” MOJO

"the most human electronic record released for ages” Loud & Quiet

LISTEN TO THE RANGE'S "COPPER WIRE"; POTENTIAL OUT THIS FRIDAY

The Range | 03/22/16

Image: The Range press photo

The Range has shared "Copper Wire," the latest cut from forthcoming new album Potential out this Friday. Producer James Hinton says of ‘Copper Wire’, which features vocals from a young London rapper called Kruddy Zak:

“I think a lot of my favorite lyrics on Potential allude to coming to terms with a difficult time in your life - that moment of acceptance when you finally allow yourself to drop your guard and admit you’ve been hit with something hard. Zak's verse has a piece in it that states '09 was emotional / it's a memory / I wish that everything was still the same' and that hit me particularly deeply as that was the year I lost my mom. Writing this song was the first time I ever talked about that moment in my music, and I think it was an important step in dealing with how I was feeling to finally get some words about it down on paper.” 

Additionally, the track ‘1804’ featuring Jamaican rapper Naturaliss will be premiering tonight on Sun City Radio in Jamaica at 9:30pm EDT. 

In addition to the forthcoming album Potential, a documentary titled Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, out this spring, will look at the human stories behind Ophqi, Super Thought, and the other unknown artists included on the album. As Hinton states, “I am very conscious that these people who I have sampled elevate what I do, just as much as my record brings their work somewhere else.”

The Range will be playing a release day show this Friday at Bowery Ballroom supporting Empress Of and has been recently announced to the lineups of Osheaga Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and FORM Arcosanti. More shows are to be announced soon.

Potential will be available in CD, LP, deluxe double LP edition, and digital formats. The deluxe double LP edition is available to pre-order exclusively from the Domino Mart and includes a bonus 4 track Strings 12” EP and includes an instant download of “Florida,” "Five Four," and "Copper Wire."

THE KILLS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ASH & ICE, TO BE RELEASED 3RD JUNE

The Kills | 03/04/16

Image: The Kills launch shot

The Kills have unveiled details of their highly anticipated fifth album. Entitled Ash & Ice, the album will be released on June 3rd through Domino. Accompanying today’s announcement is the video for brand new single ‘Doing It To Death’, directed by Wendy Morgan (Janelle Monae, Laura Mvula) and shot in Los Angeles last month. 

 

 

Over their almost decade-and-a-half career, The Kills have released four records. Each one a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement that bristled with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui, yet not one of them sounded like the previous one. Ash & Ice is the follow up to 2011’s critically lauded Blood Pressures and was five years in the making in part due to Jamie Hince’s five hand surgeries, which resulted in him having to re-learn how to play guitar with a permanently damaged finger. 

Unlike earlier albums, which have largely been written and recorded at Key Club Studio in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the bulk of the recording for Ash & Ice took place in a rented house in LA and at the world famous Electric Lady Studios in NYC. The album was produced by Jamie Hince and co-produced by John O’Mahony (Metric & The Cribs), and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Arcade Fire, Amy Winehouse) and Tchad Blake (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys).

It was during Hince’s recuperation from surgery that he first started sketching out what would become the songs for the album. To shake up the writing process, Hince booked a solo trip on the infamous Trans-Siberian Express for inspiration while Alison Mosshart, now residing in Nashville, TN, wrote some of the most affecting, poetically candid lyrics that she ever has, painting word pictures that mine the dangerous terrain between romantic obsession, prophecy and tough love. Where previous albums had an air of detachment and emotional austerity, underpinned by an uneasy self-awareness and unexpressed anger, the 13 songs on Ash & Ice are more understated, less tempestuous and more affecting because of that, exposing the kind of push-pull you feel when you find yourself in a complicated but all-consuming relationship. Ash & Ice is The Kills at their emotionally charged, arresting best. Prepare to be slayed.

The album details come with additional tour dates, including dates in DC, Boston, Detroit, Chicago and San Francisco. All dates are listed below, and new shows go on sale this coming Friday, March 4.

THE RANGE'S "FIVE FOUR" VIDEO; NYC + LA SHOWS THIS WEEK

The Range | 02/29/16

Image: The Range Five Four thumbnail

Following the release of the first single “Florida” from his forthcoming album Potential, Brooklyn, NY-based musician The Range (AKA James Hinton) has shared “Five Four” with an accompanying video. Watch it below now.

As its backbone, Potential utilizes a series of vocal samples that Hinton found in the deep corners of YouTube. “Five Four” finds Hinton exploring his love of early ’00s grime and mid ‘00s electronica while bringing it to a new sonic and emotional whole.  The music video, directed by Daniel Kaufman, features the London, UK-based grime MCs Ophqi and Super Thought, the musicians from the original YouTube sourced clip that Hinton used to write and produce “Five Four.”

Hinton had the following to say about the inspiration behind the song, and how it incorporates Ophqi and Superior Thought’s lyrics:
“Five Four is about the frustration of not being able to change the circumstances of a situation. I think ST captures it well - “Scarred from the hard tasks and dreams that never came to pass … And yet he tried to walk the straight and narrow path but he fiend for the lights and the drama need an arsenal and an armor to inflict the force and cause trauma.”  

In addition to the forthcoming album Potential, a documentary titled Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, out this spring, will look at the human stories behind Ophqi, Super Thought, and the other unknown artists included on the album. As Hinton states, “I am very conscious that these people who I have sampled elevate what I do, just as much as my record brings their work somewhere else.”

In addition to recently being announced on the lineups of Osheaga Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and FORM Arcosanti, The Range will be playing a handful of pre-release shows this month in Los Angeles, New York City, London and Austin for SXSW. More dates to be announced soon.
