There’s no denying that there’s a lot of shit in the real world recently and as means of escape, a lot of people are taking to the world of virtual reality.
Taking advantage of this trend and wanting to do something different, The Kills have shared a virtual reality video for single ‘Whirling Eye’, allowing viewers to explore a desolate junkyard, a city street corner, and even a disco roller rink. What more do you want as we approach the weekend?!
The video follows Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince through a variety of settings and is the latest single to be taken from the incredible album ‘Ash & Ice’. Read our review of that here!
The video was directed by Sophie Muller. Muller has previously worked with bands such as Blur, Beyoncé, The Cure, No Doubt and Kings of Leon as well as a number of The Kills videos so it’s safe to say, she knows what she’s doing! The Blur song she worked on was a little know song entitled ‘Song 2′. You might have heard of that?
With this, it’s also been announced that The Kills will celebrate their 15th anniversary as a band with a special London gig. The band have released five studio albums to date, beginning with debut record ‘Keep On Your Mean Side’ way back in 2003.
The show will take place at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London on May 30. The new date adds to The Kills’ 2017 UK tour itinerary, with the following live dates already announced for May:
May 27 – Sound City, Liverpool
May 28 – Margate, Wonderland at Dreamland, Margate
May 30 – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
