The band will begin a run of European festival dates just as Glastonbury kicks off.
The Las Vegas band, who have just shared ‘The Man’, the first song from their upcoming fifth album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’, begin a run of European festival shows later this month, just as Glastonbury is kicking off.
“I think we’re in Athens the day before, so I don’t even know if it’s possible,” Flowers told Radio X when asked about a possible Glastonbury set.
“It’s a whole lotta – I mean it’s across the water…” he added.
The band’s new album – titled ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ – will follow on from 2012’s ‘Battle Born’ as well as Brandon Flowers’ 2015 solo LP ‘The Desired Effect’. Its release date has yet to be announced.
According to a press release, the album is “soon-to-be completed” and is “shaping up to be their most sonically forward-thinking record yet; an LP bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-filling anthems”.
The band have also announced new live dates. See their full tour schedule beneath.
