    Jamie Hince, husband of supermodel Kate Moss, and his bandmate Alison Mosshart comprise The Kills, who will return to the U.S. and Canada this December for a select run of tour dates including shows in Chicago, Detroit and Toronto. They are also supporting their friends, Queens of the Stone Age at their arena show in Brooklyn. Huzzah!

    In other news, The Kills have announced the release of a live concert film shot in Paris in 2011.

    Working backwards, here's the deets on the live film.

    On November 12, 2011, The Kills played the first of two sold-out shows at the prestigious L'Olympia Theatre in Paris. Three thousand tickets a night had been sold. After coming off stage at one of the wildest shows of their career, Jamie and Alison turned to each other and said, "We have to film tomorrow night's show!"

    OMG, you guys!

    Overnight, the call was put out via Facebook, asking if anyone would come and film the second show for them.

    At soundcheck the next day, Sunday, November 13, 2011, a group of friends and fans assembled to capture that night's equally stunning show for posterity. That's dedication and true fandom.

    Director Anita Ribeyrol, along with editors Olivier Aslanian and Sylvain Calves, then assembled the footage into the raw, sweat-drenched concert movie that The Kills are proud to launch exclusively in partnership with the clothing label Equipment.

    Watch the film at equipmentfr.com, or below.



    Also, The Kills are working on their fifth album.
