The Kills (Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince) are releasing a new album, Ash & Ice, on June 3 via Domino. Now they have shared a video for “Siberian Nights.” Actor Giovanni Ribisi (Lost in Translation, Boiler Room, Avatar) directed the clip that features evocative images of white horses, men on the run, and car headlights at night. Watch it below.

Ribisi issued a statement on the video: “I’ve always looked at videos from a cultural perspective. Whether it’s about a single, cultural event or some facet of the band. Over the course of making this video, what was there evolved into being something more abstract. However, during its early conception, I was enamored with a John Houston film called The Misfits. Ernst Haas was there during the making of it, taking photographs. His pictures were some of the many references for the video. The Kills have always been one of my favorite bands. Their music is undeniable. It was a pleasure and a privilege for me to work on this.”

The Kills previously shared Ash & Ice‘s first two singles, “Doing It to Death” and “Heart of a Dog.” Hince co-produced the album with John O’Mahony and Tom Elmhirst, and Tchad Blake mixed Ash & Ice. The album was recorded in a rented house in Los Angeles and at the Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Ash & Ice is the follow-up to 2011’s Blood Pressures. The long gap between albums was partly due to Hince’s five hand surgeries. He ended up with a permanently damaged finger, meaning that he had to relearn how to play guitar.

The Kills also performed “Doing It to Death” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week and that video is below too, as are the band’s tour dates.
