Meanwhile, Howling Bells frontwoman Juanita Stein was recently announced as the support act for The Killers’ forthcoming arena tour. She released her debut solo album ‘America’ back in August, and she will perform cuts from the record during her support slot.

The Killers recently covered two Tom Petty songs in tribute to the late music icon.

Petty passed away earlier this month (October 2) at the age of 66. Since his death, the likes of Coldplay, The National and Father John Misty have all covered his music live.


During their headline set at Austin City Limits festival, The Killers played renditions of Petty’s tracks ‘American Girl’ and ‘The Waiting’.

“It was just like somebody stabbed you in the heart when you heard that he died,” frontman Brandon Flowers told the crowd.

The band also recently celebrated their their first number one in the US with latest album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’.

Despite having scored five number one albums in the UK, this is the first time The Killers have reached the top spot in their home country. Their previous highest charting record was ‘Sam’s Town’, which reached number two.

‘Wonderful Wonderful’ sold 118,000 album equivalent units in its first week in the US, 111,000 of which were traditional album sales. It knocked Foo Fighters‘ ‘Concrete And Gold’ from the top spot.
