The Killer’s newest album is set to debut on August 21st, with their North American tour dates postponed, and to be determined. In the meantime, we can’t wait to rock out to their new album.
The Killers are thrilled to announce that their forthcoming new album, Imploding The Mirage, will be released worldwide on August 21, 2020 on Island Records. Imploding The Mirage, The Killers’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2017’s chart topping Wonderful Wonderful, has already spawned a monster hit in first single “Caution” which reached #1 at the top of both the Alternative and Triple A radio charts. More recently, they released impressive tracks “Fire In Bone” and“My Own Soul’s Warning”. A video for “My Own Soul’s Warning,” which was released last month, has also debuted today. Check it out below.
Imploding The Mirage – produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen – was recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, UT. It is the first Killers album to be written and recorded since leaving their hometown of Las Vegas, NV. Imploding The Mirage also features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the band 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 (War On Drugs), Blake Mills, and Lucius.
The Killers are also announcing that they will be postponing their remaining 2020 tour dates for North America and Australia. 2021’s scheduled UK shows are not affected. The band said in a message to fans:
“As so many of us have come to realize during the Covid-19 pandemic, the idea that we would be returning to “normal” is farther along in the future than we initially thought. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our planned North American and Australian tour dates slated for the Fall. The safety of our fans and families is of the utmost importance to us always. We want nothing more to hit the road and play these songs for you and when the time is right, we will do just that! Be safe and be healthy. We appreciate you.“
The Killers intend to tour in 2021 with rescheduled dates for all original shows below. The tour, the band’s biggest ever, sold out in hours when initial dates went on sale late last year, but fans have been assured that all tickets held for the original dates will be honored and are transferable to the corresponding 2021 show.
The Killers will be joined by Special Guests Blossoms, Sam Fender and Manic Street Preachers at select shows. Remaining tickets for selected UK dates are available from gigsandtours.comand ticketmaster.co.uk.
