The Kills Announce 'Echo Home - Non-Electric EP' in Celebration of 15th Anniversary

The Kills Announce Echo Home - Non-Electric EP in Celebration of 15th Anniversary
 
Featuring Acoustic Versions of Tracks New and Old
Plus Cover of Rihanna's "Desperado

The Kills - Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince - will release the Echo Home - Non-Electric EP digitally on June 2nd, with a limited edition 10" vinyl release available for pre-order today.
 
Both the physical and digital versions of the Echo Home - Non-Electric EP will feature audio from a stripped down session the band captured recently at Electric Lady Studios in New York. Alongside "Echo Home", the EP features Ash & Ice track "That Love", a cover of Rihanna's "Desperado" (which the band originally played as part of a Sirius XMU session), and the song "Wait", off the band's first ever release, Black Rooster EP, which celebrates it's 15 year anniversary on May 28th.
 
The Black Rooster EP was originally released on Dim Mak in 2002 and was the start of what's been an incredible career for Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince of The Kills.
With five full-length albums (the most recent being 2016's Ash & Ice), four EPs, a documentary, and countless live shows under their belt, the passion and fire they continue to bring to every recording and performance is extraordinary.
 
In their 15th year as a band, The Kills have been looking back and celebrating with a string of anniversary shows and retrospective features, and now this re-recording of "Wait", one of the first Kills songs ever released. Steve Aoki, owner of Dim Mak and another artist who has proven a career with similar staying power, recently had some words to share on the release of Black Rooster:
 
"Many moons ago, back in 2002, I had to make a decision whether to pursue a Ph.D. Program or continue with my label Dim Mak & after hearing a demo from The Kills and becoming the first American label to release their EP Black Rooster, I knew what path I was going to choose. They took me under their wing and I hit the road with them as their tour manager, merch guy, driver (we all took turns) and label. I'll never forget that and love Jamie and Alison forever. Thank you for believing in lil me when not many people gave two shits about Dim Mak and what we were doing. Ride or Die." - STEVE AOKI
