The Kills will celebrate their 15th anniversary with some new shows set for March 2017 in various California venues.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 15 years, you know The Kills are none other than Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart.

The Brit-American duo whose fuzzy and niche alternative sound has thrilled enthusiasts for years, marks a decade and a half of touring and recording.

Their latest release is Ash and Ice.

According to Jamie, The Kills met in 2000 when he was in another band and Alison was staying in an apartment below him.  The two Sagittarians struck up a best friendship that has outlasted boyfriends, girlfriends and even a wife or two. They are musicians, artists and partners.

More dates will be announced over time, but for now, these are the locations for the initial celebrations: March 17 – Pioneertown, CA @ Pappy and Harriet’s; March 20 – Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues; March 22 – Oakland, CA @ Fox Theatre
