The Kills Announce Photo Book and Tour Dates

The Kills have announced a handful of North American live dates as well as the release of a new photo book. Press here sent us these details:

After taking 600 rolls of film and over 20,000 photographs, The Kills are excited to announce Dream and Drive, a book of photographs by their friend and longtime collaborator, photographer Kenneth Cappello set for release on September 4th, 2012 (August 16th world ex N. America and Canada). Dream and Drive documents over nine years of the band's career and captures Alison and Jamie in their most playful, private, intense and intimate moments, both on stage and off as they conquer the world one stage and city at a time. Dream and Drive also includes a forward written by Alison Mosshart herself.

Kenneth and The Kills' worlds collided in 2003; both in Paris, The Kills were shooting scenes for the film 'I Hate The Way You Love' in the basement of a clothing store, Kenneth and his camera happened to be hanging out and shot photos of the band as they worked. From Paris to Coney Island, from the Chelsea Hotel to out onto the road, so began their time together. Kenneth is truly part of The Kills family.

Photography has been an inherent part of The Kills' DNA since its conception ten years ago. From photo-booth laden artwork, to photographing their own magazine shoots; from exhibiting their own extensive polaroid collection, to setting up photo-booths for fans at their recent New York show - the band are renowned for their passion and involvement in arts other than music.

After celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band in February of 2012, The Kills will be taking the stage again with a number of European festivals and a few select US dates.
