What an announcement, and specifically on 1/11/11 around 11:11am to boot. It's like the mega madness mondo radness of wishes coming true! In their words: The Kills are very excited to announce that their 4th album Blood Pressures will be released around the world (excluding the U.S.A.) on April 4th, and in the U.S.A. on April 5th. To let you know a little about the new record, we've included the track listing for you... which is a lot like looking at a list of words. Enjoy.
We recorded Blood Pressures at Key Club in the state of Michigan, with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins. Jamie HInce produced the record and Bill Skibbe co-produced. Whilst in Michigan, Alison went through 52 blank cassette tapes in her 4-track recorder. Jamie bought 3 guitars and a mellotron. The studio dogs ate 360 pounds of dog food. We drank all the red wine, watched VHS tapes on Vietnam, got blown down thte street by hurricane force winds, watched lightning storms, rode bicycles / crashed bicycles. We started a game of rummy and never finished it. We tried to BBQ and realized we weren't that way inclined.Soup was better. Soup is better. And so it went, the record was completed... but not in Michigan! We finished the last few songs in London with our Michigan friends and Alison found a dog to borrow to have the studio to make things more "normal". Does this sound confusing? Good. We'll be in touch.
