The Kills celebrate their 10th anniversary in style with a rendition of the stripped down, blues ode
The Kills have released a trailer for the Samantha Morton directed video for ‘The Last Goodbye‘, which marks the duo’s ten years together as a band, and can be viewed below.
And so to the third and final part of Live4ever’s 2011 retrospective. A year packed with some genuinely outstanding releases, 2011 has enjoyed some of the most unanimously acclaimed records of recent years; PJ Harvey has won seemingly every award up for grabs thanks to ‘Let England Shake’, Kate Bush has wowed everyone with her first record of the decade, while the likes of The Boxer Rebellion, FIGO and The Minutes have come to the party with equally impressive, under-the-radar efforts just as deserving of your precious time and attention.
To celebrate another year of great music, the Live4ever Ezine is offering two readers the opportunity to win a pair of Boom earphones; a prize packed with both style and sound quality. So to be in with a chance of winning, when you’ve been through the pick of the LPs which have been taking up our space throughout the year, leave a comment below telling us your own Top 5 Albums of 2011 to be automatically entered into our giveaway.

Rock duo The Kills have unveiled the promo for their latest single ‘Baby Says‘, while also adding a sizeable series of US tour dates to their already busy European schedule.
Summer’s here and up and down the UK and beyond bands are hauling themselves through rain, mud, occasional sunshine and irritating TV presenters as another festival season gets in full swing. So with 2011 already careering towards July, it seems like a good time to sit back, take stock of the first six months of the year, and sort through the best of what has been hogging the speakers at Live4ever so far. Is rock n roll music currently in a state of stagnation? Hmm, let’s just say, judge for yourself…

After completing a 17 date run this spring to critical acclaim, The Kills have announced additional select dates through August and September. Including stops at Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot Festival, the duo will also take over LA’s Wiltern Theater and return to NYC’s Terminal 5. After playing electrifying sets at SXSW and Coachella and appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan and Last Call with Carson Daly in support of their latest offering, Blood Pressures (Domino), The Kills’ live show has become as much a part of their trademark as their dizzy, sexy rock songs. Watch a newly released performance of “The Last Goodbye” live from Coachella:
