Even before the split of The White Stripes, The Kills were the designated heirs of the world's most famous scuzz-rock duo. Alison “VV" Mosshart, also known as the singer of Jack White's The Dead Weather, and guitarist Jamie Hince are only accompanied by a drum machine. And yet for The Kills the melody is the most important thing. We had to wait a while for their fifth studio album because of Hince's lingering hand injury. But early June "Ash & Ice" hits the store. Time enough to prepare for the fuzz fest of the year!
