The Living Kills: “These New York rocker's newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of ’60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze.” - Spinner


We’re super excited to have been selected to record at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio at the end of February! More news on that to come…

Also, we’ve decided to emerge from our basement hermitage (where we’ve been busily practicing the song that will be on our newest EP) to play music for other people at Mercury Lounge. Here are the deets.

Sunday February 24
The Living Kills//Tuff Sunshine//Dave Wanamaker

Mercury Lounge, 217 East Houston Street, NY
Show starts at 8 and we go on at 10 




The Living Kills - NBC Plug and New Shows

We got a nice plug from NBC New York for our show with Brothers at The Knitting Factory!

They write:

"The Living Kills traffic in a less swaggering, but no less excellent form of rock. If Brothers are like Steppenwolf and The Rolling Stones, The Living Kills are perhaps more like The Velvet Underground — a buzzing, clamoring wreck of noise with sweetly straightforward melodies soaring overhead. Enjoy the howl of ‘Angels Without Faces.’"

We weathered the elements and ate a lot of meat yesterday at Meatopia. Thanks to everyone who came out and especially Josh Ozersky, Kali Bensaadon, Rich Crescenti, Fairfield Pro, Whole Foods, and Amstel Light.

Thanks also to Woods and The Slackers who are both amazing bands and were extremely patient given yesterday’s erratic weather. 

Excuse us while we now eat a salad.
