Following the success of their latest single “Caution,” which hit #1 on the Alternative radio chart this week, THE KILLERS are thrilled to share an incredible new song, entitled “Fire In Bone,” from forthcoming album, Imploding The Mirage.
Imploding The Mirage, which will be released via Island Records, will be receiving a new release date in the coming weeks due to delays in finalizing the album. Watch this space for more.
In more news, The Killers also confirm replacement dates for their inevitably postponed UK and Ireland stadium tour, which had been due to start in late May, with rescheduled dates for all original shows now taking place in May/June 2021. The tour – the band’s biggest ever – sold out in hours when initial dates went on sale late last year, but fans are assured that all tickets held for the original dates will be honoured and are transferable to the corresponding 2021 show.
Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2017’s chart topping Wonderful Wonderful. Produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen, the album was recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, Utah. It is the first Killers album to be written and recorded since the band left their hometown of Las Vegas and it also features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the group, who have typically kept guest spots on their albums to a minimum. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel, Blake Mills, and Lucius.
Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into Imploding The Mirage. Following their 2017 Billboard #1 album, Wonderful Wonderful – a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression – Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration.
It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.
