The Kills offer free stream of new album 'Blood Pressures' before April 4 release

April 1, 2011 |  9:28 am


The dark-haired duo the Kills are giving you a chance to stream their entire new album, "Blood Pressures," via a free stream on their website. The band's fourth album, a follow-up to 2008's ballyhooed "Midnight Boom," doesn't hit stores until Monday. Fraught with billowing toms, spunky vocals and infectious guitar fuzz, members Jaime Hince and Alison Mosshart unpack 11 new tracks of tortured love that should compel plenty of sweaty social interaction in the pit during this year's Coachella performance on April 16. Consider this an early opportunity to commit their gritty hooks and serpentine riffs to memory before seeing them live.
