The Kills Announce Dream And Drive, A Book Of Photographs By Photographer Kenneth Cappello

After taking 600 rolls of film and over 20,000 photographs, The Kills are excited to announce Dream and Drive, a book of photographs by their friend and longtime collaborator, photographer Kenneth Cappello.

Released on August 16th most everywhere and September 4th in North America, Dream and Drive documents over nine years of the band's career and captures Alison and Jamie in their most playful, private, intense and intimate moments, both onstage and off. Dream and Drive also includes a foreword written by Alison Mosshart.

"I have a lot of love for those great flea-pits and cock-eyed stages of America in Kenneth's pictures. We played on just about every one of them with their chewed-gum carpets that glued your feet down every time you tried to dance. Who'd have thought those cesspits could conjure up any magic? Of secret society proportions? We got over excited by everything back then. Everything. Even the crisps seemed exciting. Every night we'd let our heads fly way up into the clouds, dreaming we were super human and that our little band could go anywhere we wanted it to... And then bang back down to ground level at the next soundcheck with a one-eyed speaker cabinet and a dressing room wall covered in scribbled cocks. They turned out to be palaces of the supernatural those clubs, where your life could be changed one night, with nothing more than a knackered Fender Twin and a pair of disintegrating jeans. I'd forgotten it was really like that until we started on this book..." - J. Hince

"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. I know when we're looking straight on, we're looking straight through. And I suppose it's the drift and swing, that shows you who you are, and that music is a force and really is, all it's cracked up to be. These photos make me remember everything." - A. Mosshart
