After five quiet years, The Kills are reentering the arena. Not only are Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince gearing up to issue new album Ash & Ice, but the’ve also mapped out an expansive world tour in support. Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the two offered fans a preview of their live show by performing “Doing It to Death”, the first of two singles so far released off the upcoming record.
As its name suggests, “Doing It to Death” recounts The Kills’ endless loyalty to the band — the two are doing more than just making music, they’re making a pledge to each other. Their commitment and chemistry shined throughout the late-night set, as the two shredded and shrieked in tandem, playing off one another’s energy. Hince also had eyes for the camera, staring it down intensely during his concluding guitar solo.
Ash & Ice arrives on June 3rd through Domino. Also check out the album’s other teaser single, “Heart of a Dog”.
