The Kills were back on American television last night (May 17) taking to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform recent single ‘Doing It To Death’.
The single is taken from the band’s fifth studio album ‘Ash & Ice,’ which was produced by guitarist Jamie Hince and co-produced by John O’Mahony, who has previously worked with The Cribs.

This performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was a first glimpse into what to expect from the upcoming tour. Alison Mosshart said in a recent press release, “One of the first songs that [Jamie] brought for the record was called ‘Ash and Ice,’ and we loved the title. He does that all the time — he just starts with the title and he hasn’t written a word for the actual song.
I guess he was sitting at some bar or some party or someone’s house, and it was just like people ashing into a glass of ice, in that disgusting thing that you just see all the time.” ‘Ash & Ice’ will be released on June 3 via Domino Records. You can watch the performance below.
