• The Killers Release Battle Born and Announce New Tour

    The Killers will be releasing their 4th studio album, Battle Born, tomorrow September 18th, 2012 on Island Records.  Fans can stream it now via iTunes.  Click here for more.

    The Killers will also be hitting the road this winter with a full U.S. tour supporting Battle Born beginning after Thanksgiving.  The dates see the band playing their fourth show at New York City’s prestigious Madison Square Garden, among other venues.  Tegan and Sara will support on all dates, which are listed below.

    Battle Born, named after the words emblazoned on the Nevada state flag, in addition to sharing its name with the band’s recording studio, is everything Killers fans have waited for since the band announced they would be taking a short hiatus at the start of 2010. Battle Born, already being heralded as one of the most anticipated albums of 2012, is simply The Killers doing what they do best and then some:  the choruses are grander, the guitars are heavier, the drums more powerful, the vocals more commanding – all sounding quintessentially Killers while sounding bigger and better than ever before.  It is an album that, like its namesake and the band that created it, does not back down from its own strengths.
