The Kills have announced Ash & Ice, their first album since 2011’s Blood Pressures, which will be out June 3 via Domino (pre-order). The band’s Jamie Hince co-produced it with John O’Mahony (who’s also worked with The Cribs). The first single is “Doing It To Death,” which you can check out by watching its Wendy Morgan-directed video below. Artwork and tracklist below too.

The band also announced several more tour dates, in addition to the Brooklyn and Philly shows they have coming up in April (which were rescheduled from September). Those Brooklyn shows happen at Warsaw on April 12 and 13, and they’re both sold out. Updated dates are listed below.

Many of the shows are with L.A. Witch. L.A. Witch aren’t on their NYC shows, but they do play their own NYC show on May 18 at Shea. All of their dates are listed below.
