2012 marks the 10th anniversary of The Kills and to celebrate Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are set to release their first book - 'Dream & Drive' - featuring photographs from acclaimed photographer, and good friend of the band, Kenneth Cappello.
Speaking about the landmark birthday, both Jamie and Alison spoke about their pictures included in the book and the stories behind them.
“These are photos of locomotion. Silent visions of things turned up past their load. The tremble of the nightclub, the dive of backstage temporaries, electricity flung like paint through space, the FACE, the posture, the vehicle that hounds the road, sweats. I know when we're looking straight on, we're looking straight through. And I suppose it's the drift and swing, that shows you who you are, and that music is a force and really is, all it's cracked up to be. These photos make me remember everything,” says Alison.
Whilst Jamie adds, “We got over excited by everything back then. Everything. Even the crisps seemed exciting. Every night we'd let our heads fly way up into the clouds, dreaming we were super human and that our little band could go anywhere we wanted it to.. And then bang back down to ground level at the next soundcheck with a one-eyed speaker cabinet and a dressing room wall covered in scribbled cocks. They turned out to be palaces of the supernatural those clubs, where your life could be changed one night, with nothing more than a knackered Fender Twin and a pair of disintegrating jeans.” - J. Hince.
Dance & Drive is released in August. Take a look at a selection of pictures from the book below, now.
