The Killers announce one-off London show for next month

Brandon Flowers and co will launch new album 'Battle Born' at intimate gig

The Killers have announced a one-off London show for next month.

The Nevada four-piece will headline London’s HMV Forum on September 10, exactly one week before their new studio album ‘Battle Born’ is released on September 17.

The show is being broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 and tickets will be allocated from the station’s website next week.

‘Battle Born’ is the band’s fourth album and is the follow-up to their 2008 effort ‘Day & Age’. The tracklisting is yet to be confirmed, but tracks named ‘Heart Of A Girl’, ‘Flesh And Bone’ and ‘Carry Me Home’ are all set to feature as well as new single ‘Runaways’, which you can see the video for at the bottom of the page.

The band will make their live UK comeback on Friday (August 17) at Leeds’ O2 Academy and they will then headline this weekend’s V Festival on August 18 and 19.
