To some it may sound like a harrowing tag line to a Halloween blockbuster: The Horrors and The Kills to Kick it up at Coachella this Spring!  Both bands will follow up their Coachella appearance with a U.S. April/May tour, which is quite the opposite of a horror show for fans.

The Horrors, recently signed to XL Recordings, will unveil their second album in late spring.  It was produced by Geoff Barrow, of Portishead and recorded in the picturesque English city of Bath during the summer of 2008.  Labelmates The Kills, meanwhile, will keep fans current with a new acoustic-filled EP, Black Balloon, to be released April 14, 2009.
