Following critically acclaimed singles “New York,” “LA Hex” and “103,” The Kills share “Wasterpiece” – a driving, swaggering highlight featuring layered vocals from both Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, from upcoming LP God Games, out this Friday, October 27th. The single is accompanied by the announcement of a sprawling, 30-date tour across North America, including stops at landmark venues like NYC’s Webster Hall and The Wiltern in LA. Fans can sign up to receive a pre-sale code at the band’s website starting at 10 am local time today. Tickets will be available for pre-sale with the code starting tomorrow at 10 am local time, with tickets going on sale to the general public at 10 am local time on Friday, October 27th.
Where the preceding singles found The Kills exploring anxieties, both personal and collective, around a sense of place and global inhabitability, The Kills come in swinging on “Wasterpiece” with the signature, seductive bravado that has defined their storied career. Taunting, self-deprecating refrains like “you’re VIP in the hall of fame / I’m RIP on the walk of shame” propel towards a tangible sense of urgency that is felt as strongly in the propulsive arrangement as in the duo’s vocals. The song is joined by a meditative and sardonic video from director Noel Paul (Mitski, “Bug Like An Angel,” Slowdive, “Kisses”) which places The Kills as witnesses to a tantrum of entitlement on a golf course.
