    While touring alongside the Raconteurs in support of Midnight Boom, Kills vocalist Alison Mosshart struck up a friendship with frontman Jack White, leading to the formation of the Dead Weather in 2009. The Kills took a short break while the Dead Weather worked feverishly, issuing two albums in ten months and touring behind both. Blood Pressures finds Mosshart partnering with Jamie Hince once again, ending a multi-year hiatus with another offering of sexy, minimalist garage punk.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There's a new attention to variety and sonic details on BLOOD PRESSURES, with a touch of goth gospel in the backing vocals."
    Rolling Stone (p.74) - Ranked #43 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "The best record yet from the blues-punk duo Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince is sex-drenched fury."
    Spin (p.77) - "'Satellite' is a creeping fuzz-funk jam, while 'Nail in My Coffin' sports a catchy arena-glam chorus."
    Alternative Press (p.93) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Songs like 'Future Starts Slow' and the sleazy, sultry 'Baby Says' are some of te duo's best to date..."
    Magnet (p.38) - Ranked #16 in Magnet's '20 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "The sullen, bluesy tracks on BLOOD PRESSURE are an instantaneous, shivery thrill..."
    Billboard (p.48) - "Bluesier and less electronic than its predecessor, BLOOD PRESSURES is by far the Kills' most accomplished and diverse set yet."
    Paste (magazine) - "[A] great rock record....It strikes the perfect balance of songs that make you want to break whiskey bottles and those just right for moments worth remembering."
