In celebration of the band’s tenth anniversary, a beautiful six-minute documentary filmed in London by Giorgio Testi has been released. It tells the story of the final moments as The Kills prepare to go on stage for their headline show at London’s Brixton Academy.
February 2012 marks 10 years of The Kills. The band started life on February 14th 2002, with a show at the 150 capacity Bar 12, London. Four albums later the band are now playing venues such as the 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy and festivals all over the globe. The anniversary will be marked with a very special gig at New York’s Terminal 5 on February 11th.
In the past year, the band have performed electrifying sets at Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot and have appeared on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Last Call with Carson Daly in support of their latest offering, Blood Pressures (Domino). Ten years in, the band are at the peak of their powers, with one of the most stunning live shows of any contemporary rock band.
