Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, with its now-classic breakthrough singles Mr Brightside and Somebody Told Me, Las Vegas’ The Killers have gone on to sell 28 million albums, win countless Grammy, Brit, Q, NME nominations and awards and headline stadia and festivals around the world.

The Killers’ most recent LP, Wonderful Wonderful, was released in September 2017 and saw the group achieve a record breaking fifth consecutive UK Number One, also topping the U.S chart for the very first time. With the addition of that album’s hits, The Man and Run For Cover, The Killers have amassed a truly incredible back catalogue.

2019 saw The Killers unveil a stand alone song, Land Of The Free,  a heartfelt lament inspired by current events and recent national tragedies in the United States that was accompanied by a video from Academy Award-winning director Spike Lee. Later in 2019, the band headlined Glastonbury Festival for the second time (the first was in 2007), playing a hit laden set that also saw them joined by some of their ultimate heroes, Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr, in the encore.
