Monday marked The Killers follow up to their 2008 album Day & Age. After a four year hiatus from making music together and brief forays into solo work from lead singer Brandon Flowers, drummer Ronnie Vannucci and bassist Mark Stoermer; the Las Vegas locals are back with the album Battle Born. With a lot of the songs on the album based on the highs and lows of living in Sin City, Flowers holds no punches with his usual eccentric song writing which makes it well worth the price tag. The Vegas quartet have also announced a November UK Arena tour with tickets selling out fast nationwide.
The band rose to international stardom after the release of their debut album Hot Fuss in 2004. Since then the band have gone from strength to strength winning countless music awards and numerous songs being voted into top tracks of the decade polls. The Killers have also been invited to play performances by several politicians at political events. Topping up the band’s impressive CV is the recognition they have gained for their work with the Product Red campaign, which helps the fight against AIDS in Africa. Undoubtedly Battle Born will be topping the album charts worldwide making The Killers a force to be reckoned with even after 8 years in the business.
