Last Night: The Kills at ACL Live


The Kills finally made their proper return to Austin,Texas last night after a long time away. Okay, technically they were just here in March for SXSW but that doesn't really count. After several years away and without a new release since 2011, the band returned this year with the brilliant Ash & Ice. After guitarist Jamie Hince had an incident with a car door that led to several surgeries on his hand that left the future of the band at risk and the waiting game began. While unable to perform Hince took the time to build a new studio while singer Alison Mosshart moved to Nashville and focused on her side project, The Dead Weather, with Jack White. Ash & Ice was long overdue but finally arrived this year and last night the band opened with "Heart of A Dog" to one of their largest crowds in Austin to date. The band bounced around their entire catalog all night creating dream set list for die hard fans that included favorites "Doing it to Death" and "Tape Song". The band closed out the night with one of their earliest tracks "Fried My Little Brains" and finishing with one of their most well known "Sour Cherry". You can see the full set list and below.
