The Killers stream snippets from new album ‘Battle Born’

Brandon Flowers and co preview tracks from their forthcoming album, which will be released on September 17

The Killers are streaming snippets from their new album ‘Battle Born’.

The Las Vegas band will release their fourth studio album on September 17, but you can hear previews of the track on their website now.

Speaking to NME about their comeback single ‘Runaways’, which you can watch the video of below, singer Brandon Flowers said: “None of the previous [singles] have had this kind of reaction. This one seems like, out of the gate, people respond to it more.”

Last night the band played a free show (September 10) at London’s Kentish Town Forum.

The hour-long gig was broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 and saw the band playing songs from their forthcoming new album, ‘Battle Born’, as well as host of classic tracks from throughout their career. You can watch the video for ‘Runaways’ at the bottom of the page.

The Killers play London’s Roundhouse tonight (September 11) as part of the iTunes Festival and they start a 13-date arena tour at Glasgow’s SECC on October 26, which runs until November 17 when the band play the second of two shows at London’s O2 Arena.
