The Kills have announced their 17th anniversary deluxe reissue of their album No Wow, featuring two LPs – the original recording and a new mix Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Fiona Apple, Arctic Monkeys). The reissue is due out June 3rd via Domino. The new Tchad Blake mix of the title track “No Wow” is out now with an accompanying music video directed by Sally Walker-Hudecki; it is an amalgamation of her Super 8 footage and the original 2005 video directed by Kenneth Cappello.
Returning to their roots, The Kills will be performing No Wow in its entirety as a two-piece in Los Angeles and Brooklyn this June. Due to overwhelming demand, second dates have been added in both cities and are the band’s only headlining shows planned for the year. They will also be opening for Jack White at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA on June 4th.
No Wow was originally released in 2005 and won immediate acclaim for its naked, scuzzy energy. The album’s stormy fusion of darkness and the dancefloor was reflected in songs like “Love Is a Deserter” (“You got one eye as white as a bride / The other eye, as black as the devil”), and tracks like “Good Ones” radiated with heat and desperation (“You got to burn down your house, keep your dreaming alive”). And the record’s whirlwind creative timeline only enhanced its fiery pitch.
