I'm still loving the latest Kills album Blood Pressures which was released in 2011. Been a fan of theirs since the debut album.
Despite there being only two people on stage (until 2011 when they employed the services of a team of drummers for certain tracks) they make a powerful noise and have put on a great and increasingly confident show every time I have seen them.
The band are heading to the USA and have a range of tour dates in Jan/Feb including a 10th anniversary show at Terminal 5 in NYC.

I knew very little about them when I saw them play at Coachella. They were fantastic. Some two member bands can not carry a stage, but these two were brilliant..
i saw them at Lollapalooza '08 and laughed my ass off the whole time. they came off alarming bad to me, and seemed drunk and useless on stage in the middle of the afternoon. However, i do very much enjoy The Dead Weather.
Yes they have a good on stage chemistry, Alison's stage presence is (imo) contrived as fuck but it's good to watch.
