The Kills are back with a brand new EP, Echo Home – Non-Electric, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their EP Black Rooster. The new EP will be released June 2nd and will feature a stripped down session from Electric Lady Studios in New York. New versions include Wait (from Black Rooster EP), Echo Home, That Love, (both from Ash & Ice) and a cover of Rihanna’s Desperado (which the band originally played as part of a Sirius XMU session). Watch it below.
Discussing the EP, Black Rooster, Steve Aoki had this to say in a press release… (the EP was released in 2002 by his label Dim Mak)
“Many moons ago, back in 2002, I had to make a decision whether to pursue a Ph.D. Program or continue with my label Dim Mak & after hearing a demo from The Kills and becoming the first American label to release their EP Black Rooster, I knew what path I was going to choose. They took me under their wing and I hit the road with them as their tour manager, merch guy, driver (we all took turns) and label. I’ll never forget that and love Jamie and Alison forever. Thank you for believing in lil me when not many people gave two shits about Dim Mak and what we were doing. Ride or Die.”
