The Kills Unveil Unreleased Demo 'Raise Me' Ahead of Rarities Collection

The Kills have shared “Raise Me,” a previously unreleased demo that will be included on the duo's new rarities collection that's set to arrive this December, Little Bastards.

Little Bastards, which is a nickname for the drum machine that the band used in the early days of their career, will compile B-sides, demos, and covers from 2002-2009 that were originally recorded as bonus tracks for CD singles. “Raise Me” dates back to 2008-2009, the Midnight Boom album era.

Little Bastards is due out Dec. 11 via Domino and will be available digitally and as a CD and 2LP. Preorders are ongoing.
