The Kills are set to release a 'luxury' photography book called Dream & Drive, featuring photos taken by Kenneth Cappello.

The book will come out on August 16 and covers the past decade, with onstage and offstage on-the-road pictures sourced from over 20,000 photos of the band. Alison Mosshart of the band has said of the pictures in Dream & Drive:

These are photos of locomotion. Silent visions of things turned up past their load. The tremble of the nightclub, the dive of backstage temporaries, electricity flung like paint through space, the FACE, the posture, the vehicle that hounds the road, sweats... These photos make me remember everything.


The Kills released their fourth album, 'Blood Pressures', in 2011. They will play a host of European festivals in June and July, including Open'er Festival in Poland, and play San Francisco and Los Angeles in August.

Alison Mosshart recently helped out with Mark Ronson's ballet 'Carbon Life'. The piece premiered in April at the Royal Opera House and saw guest appearances from Mosshart as well as The Drums frontman Jonathan Pierce, Boy George and rapper Wale.

Ronson told The Independent: "Some of Alison's pieces are these wild, unruly passion, love letters put into song."
