The Killers announced today (July 10) that they will be releasing a new album, their fourth titled Battle Born on September 18, 2012 on Island Records worldwide. The album, created over the course of 18 months is their highly anticipated follow-up to their 2008 effort Day & Age. Battle’s first single “Runaways” premiered already today (July 10) in LA on radio power KROQ’s Kevin & Bean morning show and will be released outright July 17. The song can also be heard via the band’s website www.TheKillersMusic.com. Click HERE to hear the song.
The album title is named after the words that are on the state flag of Nevada, their native home state on top of the fact that their recording studio is ALSO named that as well. The album was crafted in the course of a year and a half, interspersed with shows at Madison Square Garden, Royal Albert Hall, a slot on Lollapalooza in Chile last year.
