The Killers are returning to New Zealand in April. The widely-acclaimed rock band is embarking on their biggest Australasian tour to date next April, touring in celebration of their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful (out 22 September through Island Records/Universal Music Australia).
The Killers burst onto the scene in 2004, topping Australian charts and going Double Platinum with their debut album Hot Fuss. Featuring hit singles ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, the album received instant popularity and widespread international success.
Their early success continued with two further platinum albums Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008), smash singles like ‘When You Were Young’, ‘Human’ and ‘Read My Mind’, and a touring schedule featuring headline arena shows and festival slots around the world including Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza.
The band’s forthcoming new album Wonderful Wonderful is the band’s first new material since Battle Born (2012). Produced by Jacknife Lee, the album was recorded between Jacknife’s Los Angeles studio and the band’s own Battle Born recording studio in Vegas.
Teased by three incredible new songs - ‘The Man’, ‘Run For Cover’ and title track ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ - the album is the band’s most sonically forward-thinking record yet, bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-pleasing anthems that make them one of the world’s biggest and beloved rock bands.
As one of the world’s most popular rock bands, these shows are not to be missed. Fans are encouraged to act now to avoid missing out!
