After two years on hiatus, Las Vegas high rollers THE KILLERS return with their fourth album Battle Born and their first Australian shows in three years.
The story of THE KILLERS’ first ten years together – during which they went from Vegas bellhops to Glastonbury headliners, earning themselves a reputation as one of the world’s finest live bands and amassing a collection of Brit, NME, MTV and (most recently) ASCAP Awards that their collective mantelpiece now heaves under – is a tale of runaway success. Battle Born is its latest and greatest chapter.
Recorded almost entirely at the studio that shares its name, it incorporates elements from each of the records that came before it – Hot Fuss’ storytelling eye for detail, the yearning, mythic Americana of Sam’s Town, the gratuitous hooks and pop nous of Day & Age – without sounding overtly like any one in particular. It’s the sound of a band recognising – and celebrating – their own identity. “Near-hysteria is all that defines the high points of a show that’s essentially one continuous climax” – Spin Magazine
THE KILLERS are known for producing anthems that explode and cascade inside the biggest arenas in the world but don’t blink you might miss!
Tickets will be suppressed until day of show. All tickets are to be venue collected from 9am at the box office on the day.
