It’s been a while (no thank you, Staind) since we’ve had some new music from the incomparable duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince. There’s been some slight interruptions since their last album, Blood Pressures, released back in 2011. Alison has been busy playing with The Dead Weather, while Jamie had to undergo five hand surgeries only to completely reteach himself how to play the guitar. Their new song, “Doing It To Death”, is very applicable. They may have been M.I.A., but they’ve certainly been plenty busy.
The news of a new song and video was also accompanied by a new album. Hooray! Their new record, Ash & Ice, will be released June 3rd, and the whole world, like myself, is on the edge of their seat, waiting… oh so patiently.
So, without further ado, here is one of my favorite duos, finally back at it. Marching through cemeteries, smoking cigarettes, clad in their signature black leather, with always such cool disinterest. It’s like they never left in the first place.
