Listen: The Killers New Song ‘Runaways’

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 11, 2012

It’s been four years since American indie rock band The Killers released a studio album, but the day fans have been hanging out for is drawing close. The Killers new record titled Battle Born will finally come out on September 18, 2012. In the lead-up to the record’s release, the band has unveiled its new single Runaways.

Back in January Music Feeds reported on The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers speaking to BBC’s Zane Lowe about the sound and direction of Battle Born.

“I think the consensus within the band is to take those things that we’ve done well and really hone in on that… We don’t want to make Hot Fuss 2 or Sam’s Town 2, or Day & Age 2″.

Earlier this year The Killers also appeared in the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows by way of a cover, remaking the Raspberries 1972 track Go All the Way.

Runaways is, however, the first new material from The Killers in quite some time, and from the sounds of it, Battle Born should be a solid record that rewards The Killers’ patient fans.
