The Killers Career Vinyl Box Set

No other band has soundtracked the 2000s more than Vegas rockers The Killers and now their nearly 15 years-long discography will be celebrated in one place with a seven-volume Killers Career Vinyl Box through Island/UMe on 15 June.

The career-spanning collection will be available on 180-gram black vinyl, in addition to a limited-edition 180-gram clear vinyl version and both will include a slip mat featuring the “K” from the band’s logo and inspired by the vintage lights of the Las Vegas Strip

This career retrospective vinyl box marks the first time that all seven of the band’s albums have been collected in one complete box set including: Hot Fuss, Sam’s Town, Sawdust, Day & Age, Battle Born, Wonderful Wonderful and for the first time on vinyl, Live From The Royal Albert Hall.

Originally released in November 2009 as a live DVD, this double live album captures the kinetic energy of their historic lives shows at the Royal Hall in 2009 and is now available as a double LP and is exclusive to the Career Vinyl Box. It also includes their mid-career compilation album, Sawdust, which contains B-sides, covers and remixes, as well as an outtake from Sam’s Town, and ‘Tranquilize’, featuring a guest appearance by Lou Reed.

As arguably the biggest indie-pop stars on the planet, their indie days are well behind them, selling out stadiums and playing tributes at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet it seems just like yesterday that every 20-something in skinny jeans was blaring the indie disco staple ‘Mr Brightside’ from The Killers’ three-times-platinum 2004 debut album, Hot Fuss. Even 14 years later, the band’s most enduring single remains firmly in the charts, having just its 200th week in the Billboard top 100.

After Hot Fuss ushered in their signature post-New Wave sound with massive hooks, they continued on their course of amassing hit after hit of transcendent anthems from ‘All These Things That I’ve Done’ and to the Springsteen-eque singalong ‘When You Were Young’ off their sophomore album Sam’s Town.

With his stylish swagger and crooning tenor, frontman Brandon Flowers could turn his sardonic streak on songs like “Smile Like You Mean It,” and ‘Somebody Told Me’ into chart gold. With each album, the group flexed their versatility, from the garage rock-pop of Hot Fuss to electro-clash energy of Day & Age to the stadium rocker of Battle Born and most recently 2017’s funk-infused Wonderful Wonderful, which snagged the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Catch the band this summer on their worldwide tour and experience their stadium-filling shows and explore our Killers Artist Page.

The Killers Career Vinyl Box is released 15 June and available for pre-order here.
