The Kills’ ‘Dream & Drive’ Book Celebrates 10 Years, Includes Photos by Kenneth Cappello

Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince have been making music as The Kills for more than 10 years. In celebration of this milestone, the duo are releasing a book featuring photographs by well-known photographer Kenneth Cappello.

“These photos make me remember everything,” shares Mosshart.

Dream & Drive” documents more than nine years of The Kills’ career, including behind-the-scenes, live and press shots. With their close friend Cappello behind the camera, the captures appear more organic and intimate than what most fans are used to seeing.

“These are photos of locomotion,” explains Mosshart. “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.”

“Dream & Drive” is set to release in North America on Sept. 4 and elsewhere on Aug. 16. It can be pre-ordered for $55. The Kills is giving fans the opportunity to win a signed copy of the photobook by sharing memories, “photos, flyers, videos, anything,” from the last 10 years on Facebook.

Los Angeles and New York City dwellers have the opportunity to experience the release in a different way. Both Mosshart and Hince will be signing copies of “Dream & Drive” at BookMarc‘s LA location on Aug. 10 and NY location on Aug. 18. The duo’s favorite photos from the collection will be on display at NY’s MILK Studios between Aug. 17 and Aug. 19, with a special event featuring Mosshart, Hince and Cappello taking place at MILK gallery on Aug. 16.
