Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince have spent much of the past few years being Jack White's sidekick and Kate Moss' boyfriend, respectively, but the duo is finally getting back to business and releasing a new Kills album. Blood Pressures, their first since 2008's excellent Midnight Boom, is completed and will be released on April 4. No new songs have been leaked yet, but the pair recently detailed the recording process on their website:

We recorded Blood Pressures at Key Club in the state of Michigan, with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins. Jamie Hince produced the record and Bill Skibbe co-produced. Whilst in Michigan, Alison went through 52 blank cassette tapes in her 4-track recorder. Jamie bought 3 guitars and a mellotron. The studio dogs ate 360 pounds of dog food. We drank all the red wine, watched VHS tapes on Vietnam, got blown down the street by hurricane force winds, watched lightening storms, rode bicycles/ crashed bicycles. We started a game of rummy and never finished it. We tried to bbq and realized we weren't that way inclined. Soup was better. Soup is better. And so it went, the record was completed . . . but not in Michigan! We finished the last few songs in London with a our Michigan friends and Alison found a dog to borrow to have at the studio to make things more 'normal'. Does this sound confusing? Good. We'll be in touch.

The Kills will be touring internationally in support of Blood Pressures, including a May 9 stop at Showbox at the Market. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, January 22, and they're $18. Get a pair! It's sure to be one of Seattle's sexiest, most rocking shows of 2011.
