It’s that time once again: Time for Brandon Flowers and the Killers to return to the masses and dominate much of the conversation about modern rock/pop, which the esteemed Las Vegas-based band will do in 2020.
On Friday, the Killers announced a new album, Imploding the Mirage, which is set to be released in “Spring 2020,” though an exact date has yet to be unveiled.

Imploding the Mirage will be the follow-up to the Killers’ 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful, and the band’s sixth to date since bursting onto the scene with 2004’s groundbreaking Hot Fuss.
Earlier this year, the Killers released a standalone single, “Land of the Free,” a socially conscious anthem with a moving music video directed by Spike Lee, though that song doesn’t appear to be included on the new record.
In addition to announcing the album, the Killers announced a handful of huge tour dates for the UK and Ireland in the early summer. Some of these venues are CASTLES, which makes sense for a band as big and important as the Killers.
