The Kills photo book to be released in August

It has been announced that garage rock duo The Kills will release something new in August 2012. Although the band’s last album – 2011’s ‘Blood Peassures’ appeared over a year ago, the upcoming release does not concern new music.

The August release will be a lavish “coffee table” styled tome containing hundreds of photographs of The Kills, taken throught their career by photographer Keith Cappello. The best images were selected from Capello’s personal archive of over 20,000 photographs.

The book, entitled ‘Dream & Drive’ will be in stores on August 16th.

It is not known when The Kills will return to the studio to begin work on new material, or when vocalist Alison Mosshart plans to reconvene with Jack White as part of their Dead Weather project.
