The Kills Spring Tour & Coachella Appearance

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — London’s The Kills announce a 22-date US tour, beginning in Indio, CA at the Coachella Arts and Music Festival on April 19th. ‘Midnight Boom’, the band’s 3rd full length album was released last year on Domino Records to wide critical acclaim. Stunning sets at SXSW, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and tours with The Raconteurs and The Black Keys, have made The Kills one of the must see live acts of the past year.

The Kills will release a new EP, entitled Black Balloon on April 14 (March 23 rest of world, on Domino everywhere), including the track from Midnight Boom as well as brand new acoustic tracks.

The new EP follows up January’s iTunes Live Sessions EP, recorded at the end of the band's fall tour at Electric Lady Studio in NYC, which features live versions of “Sour Cherry” and “Getting Down,”, acoustic versions of “Pull a U” and “Kissy Kissy” and a cover version of Willie Nelson's “Crazy.”

Fusing pop, punk and glam, The Kills music is a combination of light and dark, funny and morbid, experimental and cute that results in short, sharp atmospheric songs.

Special guests on all North American dates will be The Horrors, with Magic Wands.
