the killers The Killers title new album Battle Born

The Killers have revealed a number of details about their fourth album in an interview with Rolling Stone (via NME). The follow-up to 2008’s Day & Age will be titled Battle Born, named after the band’s personal studio where the album was recorded. Frontman Brandon Flowers explained, “In a sense, all Americans are battle born. Our ancestors came here for something better.”

Album tracks include “Heart Of A Girl”, “Flesh And Bone”, “Carry Me Home”, and “Runaways”, with production by Stuart Price, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, and Brendan O’Brien. A release date is tentatively set for the fall.

Below, you can watch footage of the band performing a new song called “The Rising Tide”.

Really Brandon? Why be coy. Battle Born is emblazoned on the Nevada State Flag. It’s the state Nickname. Yes before  The Killers our contribution to the musical tapestry was Toni Basil and Mark Slaughter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be proud of your roots.
