With each passing day, The Kills’ 2011 plans become increasingly overwhelming. First was the announcement of their fourth LP, Blood Pressures, then came a spot at this year’s South by Southwest 2011, and now the Alison Mosshart-led outfit unveils the rest of their forthcoming roadmap. Like today’s two announcements for Foals and Cut Copy, The Kills’ trek includes a noticeable gab on the West Coast during the weekend of Coachella. In fact, the outfit will kick off their endeavor with the aforementioned Foals in San Diego on April 15th. After that, it’s on to Austin, Nashville, and Georgia before The Kills make their up the Eastern seaboard and ultimately turn left for a series of Midwest performances. By mid-May, the band will find their way back west, culminating with a May 11th performance in San Francisco.

Cold Cave and The Entrance Band will supply support on all dates, except San Diego. Ticket information can be found on the band’s website.

Blood Pressures is due for release April 5th via Domino Records.

I'm going to be in Europe around that time. Looks like their date in Amsterdam is the night before the Trail of Dead show that I was already planning on going to. The Kills are awesome, as evidenced here:

I found out about them a long time ago when this song was in this movie called "The Beat that My Heart Skipped." It's a french movie.

What stage/tent do you think they'll be in?Well, last time the Kills played in the Mojave... so why not again? Regardless of where it is, it'll be all kinds of awesome. :)

They were great in 09

Hooray!!! And they're at Showbox at the Market--such a small intimate venue. This is going to be amazing.

A little sad we have to wait until after Coachella to see a club show, but that just means the Coachella set will be that much more electrifying.

Loved 'em at Lollapalooza in '08 (right? '08). Granted, she fell down and almost passed out with heat exhaustion, but it was a friggin' hot day in Chicago.

They deserve a late night outdoor. I'd prefer the 3p main stage slot, less conflict.

they played a tent in the day in 05, the mojave at night in 09..

they could have the same slot as 09, and that'd be fine.
but an outdoor show would be pretty fantastic too. only if it were after sunset.

Their last one was one of those albums where I love every.single.song. It was a shame they got scheduled during that conflictclustfuck that was Sunday '09.

They played an afternoon in 2005 and still put on an amazing set. I had to leave a few songs early in 2009 for The Cure, so I'll be very happy to see them again in 2011.

im definitely getting pre-sale tix when I get home.

Anyhow, I REALLY hope this isnt one of those things where Cold Cave play Coachella while the Kills don't.
