The Kills' Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince

The Kills Hope To Raise Blood Pressures With A New Album This April

Although it seemed that The Kills' Alison Mosshart was preoccupied with The Dead Weather and Jamie Hince was busy skirting paparazzi with girlfriend Kate Moss, the duo have finally wrapped work on their fourth album Blood Pressures and will release it on April 5 in the States on Domino Records and April 4 in the UK and elsewhere. 

The pair made the announcement on their website on Tuesday that the album, recorded in Michigan at their favored studio Key Club (where 2008's Midnight Boom was done), was produced by Hince with co-producer Bill Skibbe. Although the bulk of the record was done in Michigan, it was completed in London and mixed by Tom Elmhirst. Additional guests include The REV Gospel Collective who appear on the tracks "Satellite" and "DNA."

"Alison went through 52 blank cassette tapes in her 4-track recorder," according to a chatty note posted on the site. "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 the street by hurricane force winds, watching lightning storms, rode bicycles/crashed bicycles."

Tour dates will be announced shortly.
