The Killers have announced the title of their new album along with details of a stadium tour for summer 2020. Entitled Imploding The Mirage, the sixth album from Brandon Flowers and his team will arrive in Spring 2020 – just in time for their biggest UK and Ireland tour to date.
After their celebrated set headlining Glastonbury 2019, The Killers return for shows calling at Falkirk, Manchester, Norwich, Southampton, London, Bristol, Coventry, Middlesborough and Dublin, the band will be joined at selected shows by special guests Blossoms, Sam Fender and Manic Street Preachers.
Tickets go on general sale from 9am on Friday, 22 November. For tickets and further information, please visit the band’s official website.
During October, The Killers teased the follow-up to 2017’s Wonderful, Wonderful by sharing a list of potential track names. Names such as ‘Blowback’, ‘Party People’, ‘When Dreams Run Dry’, ‘Dying Breed’, ‘Caution’ and ‘Man + Woman’ were all accompanied by large ticks – a possible indication that they will feature on Imploding The Mirage. Other track titles featured on the list include ‘Spirit of Mystery’, ‘My God’, ‘Running Towards’, ‘Fire + Bone’, ‘Just Can’t Quit’ and ‘Mirage C’est La Vie’.
“We’ve been in Utah doing it,” Flowers told NME earlier this year about Imploding The Mirage. “That’s where I fell in love with music for the first time; so it’s interesting to be there again and hear some of that music with the geography matching the sensation.
“Some of that stuff is starting to resurface and a lot of that had to do with synthesiser music. It’s always been part of our DNA but it’s definitely creeping up.”
