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 is a concept album telling the story of two lovers who feel their story is coming to an end. Songs follow each other on the rythm of the lover's interactions : from anger to sadness, from certainty to doubts. The CD is followed by a secret track, "The Last Goodbye". It is left to the listener to understand if they are actually leaving each other or if their love story will endlessly continue with these "Midnight Booms" : the title refers to the moment the moon comes up and everyone else goes to bed, but the two lovers who look at their dying relation and quarrel.
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.
