The Kills have unveiled a new music video for their new track “Heart Of A Dog”, which they premiered on the Coachella festival live stream immediately before their blistering energetic performance on Friday evening.

The video was directed by Sophie Muller who has worked with the band in the past (“U.R.A Fever,” “Cheap and Cheerful,” “Last Days of Magic” and “Satellite”). Ash & Ice will be released on June 3rd through Domino.

The band adds:

“We are very very especially pleased to release our new music video for “Heart of A Dog!” It was shot all day and into the night in Los Angeles by our dear friend, the tremendous talent, Sophie Muller. We love this video. We love it because it’s fucking fun. Muscle cars and backflips. Palms trees and cacti. Dogs and dice. Neon and sunshine. We hope you love it as much as we do. VROOM VROOM.

Love, The Kills.”

Over their almost decade-and-a-half career, The Kills have released four records. Each one a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement that bristled with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui, yet not one of them sounded like the previous one. Ash & Ice is the follow up to 2011’s critically lauded Blood Pressures and was five years in the making.

The Kills are performing to a sold out crowd in Los Angeles at the Mayan Theater tonight and in Santa Ana at The Observatory tomorrow. The band is also making stops in DC, Toronto, Boston, Detroit, Chicago and more in May. Additionally, they announced a fall tour in Europe – general on-sale on Friday at 10am CET.
