About The Killers
The Killers shot to fame in 2004 with their multi-Platinum certified debut Hot Fuss, which spawned the global chart hits Somebody Told Me and instant indie-classic Mr Brightside.
Sam’s Town followed in 2006 with Bones, Read My Mind and When You Were Young. 2008 saw the release of Day & Age. The album scooped several awards reaching Gold and multi-Platinum status across the globe. The single Human became a radio staple.
Relentless touring and the search for a new direction for The Killers led to the band taking a creative break after touring and promotional commitments for Day & Age.
Brandon Flowers briefly embarked on a quite successful solo career that saw his solo debut Flamingo top the album charts and lead single Crossfire break into the Top Ten.
The Killers returned in 2012 with their album Battle Born. The album, released in autumn 2012, marks the band's comeback after a hiatus following the release of 2008’s Day & Age. The album contains the singles I Feel It In My Bones and Shot At The Night.
Battle Born was produced by Stuart Price, who has worked with Madonna, long-time U2 producer Steve Lillywhite, Damien Taylor and Brendan O'Brien. It became the band’s fourth No.1 album following Hot Fuss, Sam’s Town and Day & Age.
In 2013 The Killers released a greatest hits album titled Direct Hits. It includes their Top Ten singles Somebody Told Me, When You Were Young, Human and Mr Brightside amongst others.
