The Kills Announce Rarities Album, Release New Video for ‘Raise Me’

    The Kills have announced a new rarities album called Little Bastards, out December 11 via Domino. The collection will include B-sides as well as demos the band recorded from 2002 through to 2009. They’ve also released the video for a previously unreleased demo titled ‘Raise Me’, which the group’s Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince made around the time of their 2008 LP Midnight Boom. Check it out below.

    The title of the album is named after the nickname for the drum machine the band was using at the time. “It was a Roland 880,” Hince said, “which isn’t strictly a drum machine – it’s a sequencer, and an eight-track recorder, with its own drum machine built in, and that’s what we’d record all our beats on.”

    The Kills’ most recent studio album was 2016’s Ash & Ice. Mosshart recently released her debut solo spoken word LP, Sound Wheel.
