About this album

Midnight Boom is the third album from The Kills, released on March 10, 2008 through Domino Records (March 17, 2008 in the United States). It was recorded in Benton Harbor, MI. “Midnight Boom” refers to the moment the moon comes up and everyone else goes to bed.

The album was preceded with a site, also titled Midnight Boom, dedicated to the videos and multi-tracks for “U.R.A. Fever”, “Cheep and Cheerfull”, and “Last Day of Magic”. Due to the album’s unexpectedly high profile level, “Tape Song” and “Black Balloon” served as follow-up singles, and “Sour Cherry” became a cult hit due to its inclusion on the show Gossip Girl.

    This has to be one of the catchiest albums of the past decade. It's almost impossible to listen to just one song - right after there's another great one. And then another. And then another. [2] exactly!
