THE KILLERS are thrilled to share the details of their forthcoming, highly-anticipated sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage, which is set for release on May 29, 2020 on Island Records. The album - produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen - was recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, UT. It is the first Killers album to be written and recorded since leaving their hometown of Las Vegas, NV. Imploding The Mirage also features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the band who have typically kept guest spots on their albums to a minimum. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel (War On Drugs), Blake Mills, and Lucius. The album’s first single, “Caution”, is all of Imploding The Mirage’s excellence densely packed into three and a half minutes. Both refreshingly next level and reminiscent of the band’s much-loved albums Sam’s Town and Battle Born, it finds The Killers evoking the spirit of ambitious reinvention matched with the kind of anthemic chorus to which they’ve become synonymous. The track also features an iconic guitar solo courtesy of the legendary Lindsey Buckingham.
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO “CAUTION”Pre-order Imploding The Mirage The Killers are also thrilled to announce additional dates around the globe -- playing some of the biggest venues in the world -- to their already sold-out UK and European tour this summer. When announced this past fall, the band’s ten UK stadium concerts sold out immediately, moving over 350,000 tickets within hours. The UK leg will include two sold out nights at the 55,000 capacity London Emirates Stadium as well as a 50,000 capacity show in Manchester at Emirates Old Trafford. These sold out stadium shows come on the back of the band’s triumphant 2019 Saturday night headline slot at the 150,000 capacity Glastonbury festival, where the band treated the rapturous crowd with surprise performances from The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and Pet Shop Boys. Special guest Johnny Marr joins the band again this summer as opener for the U.S and Canadian shows. Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into Imploding The Mirage. Following their 2017 Billboard #1 album, Wonderful Wonderful - a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression - Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm. Indeed, Imploding The Mirage leaves the grit and glitter of Vegas behind for something more expansive and triumphant. (Literally. Flowers moved his family from the parched flats of Vegas, NV to the lush mountains of Utah before beginning work on the record.) It’s an album that also pushed the band out of their musical comfort zone, exploring new terrain and referencing the albums in their collection that filled them with a sense of romance and camaraderie in their youth. Influences include Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, as well as Killers’ touchstones like Bruce Springsteen and New Order. Throughout it all, Flowers remains a wholly singular songwriter. A prolific artist with a steadfast understanding in how much solace a song can provide; he’s a pensive craftsman in the studio and an exuberant rock star on the stage. These 2020 shows will give fans a chance to experience The Killers as they deliver the most relentlessly enjoyable rock show of the year. Run, don’t walk:All tickets for the U.S. and Canadian shows are on sale on Friday, March 20th at 10 am local time. Each ticket purchased online for the U.S. shows comes with a CD copy of Imploding The Mirage as well.

Tim Burgess (of the Charlatans) Shares New Track "The Mall"

Having last month announced his new album I Love The New Sky that will be released on May 22nd via Bella Union and shared a brilliant video for "Empathy For The Devil"Tim Burgess today shares another little charmer of a video, this time for new single “The Mall”.Watch and listen HERE.
Of the track Burgess says: "The mall is like a state of mind - everything and nothing is there. It induces a kind of torpor. Even the process of going between floors is assisted by moving staircases. Shop windows are hypnotic but you don’t have to take part in anything. Malls are a great leveller - class and status disappear. They are like a waking dream, an altered state. A kind of limbo. Plus they are handy if you need new shoes or a doughnut.”
Additionally, Burgess will play shows in New York City this week as part of New Colossus Festival.
How inspiring it is to hear Tim Burgess conjuring up exciting and life-affirming sounds as he, almost inconceivably, enters his fifth decade on public duty. Frontman, singer, label boss, DJ and author, he’s been instrumental in so many great records over the years, always bringing enthusiasm, positivity and diversity of influence, which altogether light the way for those who hold him dear. While in The Charlatans, Tim’s insatiable energy has been a consistent fuel for the band across thirteen high-charting albums, his solo adventure has been no less extraordinary, scaling new heights in 2020 with his fifth solo release to date: I Love The New Sky. Released via Bella Union, it features wonderfully connective songs of everyday minutiae and universal experience, of love and anger, of loss and belonging, all united by elaborate yet natural arrangements and an effortless but deceptively expert way with melody.
I Love The New Sky differs from its predecessors in that all twelve tracks were self-penned. “In the past, I've written collaboratively,” says a characteristically, but rightfully, excited Burgess. “(2012's) ‘Oh No I Love You’ was written with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner in Nashville, and then ‘Same Language, Different Worlds’ was a collaboration with Peter Gordon who had worked extensively with Arthur Russell.” The twelve tunes of I Love The New Sky were authored, he says, “in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away. There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music.” So far, so Laurel Canyon, though I Love The New Sky would end up sounding anything but hippie/folkie, thanks to a connection Tim made while living in a warehouse space in gritty Seven Sisters in North London, before heading to Norfolk. “The Quietus had their office there,” he recalls. “I used to know pretty much all the stuff they were writing about, but then their album of the year for 2013 was ‘Glynnaestra’ by Grumbling Fur, and I really fell in love with it. I started talking to the band about working together. To cut a long story short I recorded a song with Grumbling Fur, they remixed two Charlatans tracks and a couple of Daniel O'Sullivan's solo albums came out on my label.” As well as arranging and production duties on I Love The New Sky, O’Sullivan plays bass, drums and piano, from the bouncing chamber-pop chords of "Sweetheart Mercury" and the punchy chorus of "Empathy For The Devil", through to "Comme D’Habitude’’s juxtaposition of blissfully rolling West Coast singer-songwriting and a complex Sparks-y Broadway-esque bridge, to the Velvets-y ramalama moves on "Warhol Me" and "Undertow’’s sombre balladry. The album was arranged and recorded quickly but not rushed: “Ideas happen fast, don’t they?” Tim reasons. The first sessions at Eve Studios in Stockport were with long-serving Charlatans engineer Jim Spencer. Tim, Daniel and Nik Void cut three tracks in two days, with Nik layering up modular synths in line with her previous day job in Factory Floor. A third keyboard maestro entered the picture when Thighpaulsandra, a maverick musician and producer, came into the frame, best known for his work for Julian Cope, Coil Spiritualized and Elizabeth Fraser. "I found out that he was based at ‘Rockfield’ [legendary residential facility near Monmouth, South Wales]. So I said, ‘Okay, that’s where we’re going to record the rest of it’.” As well as enlisting his know-how as an engineer, the cosmically-inclined Welshman also applied vintage synths and what Tim hazily calls “wizardry”. The results are nothing short of astounding. I Love The New Sky has landed somewhere between Paul McCartney's RAM and Brian Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) and certainly that recipe covers both the all-pervasive tunefulness and high quality. Stylistically, though, it runs the widest gamut, from "Empathy For The Devil"s gospel style rockabilly skip, through to the sophisticated song-craft of "Sweetheart Mercury" and the Nilsson-esque "Sweet Old Sorry Me", with the angst-y gravitas of "Undertow", which Tim describes as “a mood-changer, influenced by 10cc.” Lyrically, this might almost be a defining collection from Burgess after thirty years honing his craft. There’s plenty of typical lightness of touch of "Only Took A Year"s joking reference to the album’s twelve-month gestation period, and the quip, “what’s your favorite Cure LP? I like ‘Pornography! But it could be any one of three.” "I Got This" has the line “the future is friendly”. Says Tim: “Everyone’s been going through a lot of tough times. And the future is uncertain. But you have to have that optimistic outlook – like, waking up in the morning and feeling that it’s gonna be a good day.” The final stages of the album’s year-long narrative arc were enacted at Jet Studio in Brussels, with the Echo Collective string section. Burgess looked on “mesmerised at what was happening to the songs, taking an even more magical turn.” With that icing on the cake, Tim is in no doubt that he has his finest solo record under his belt. He’ll be touring the album with a live ensemble featuring Daniel O’Sullivan, Thighpaulsandra, another O Genesis artiste called Keel Her, and renowned avant-jazz violinist Peter Broderick, who plays on ‘’Empathy…’ and will recreate the Echo Collective parts, too. So, the community will grow. Just like Tim says, “the future is friendly.”

LIFE Share New Track "Switching On"

LIFE Share New Track "Switching On"

Ahead of live dates at New Colossus Festival in New York this week (& some pending rescheduled sets in Austin, Texas the following), Hull’s LIFE continue their rapid upward trajectory with the announcement of their new single "Switching On". Honing in on a more exploratory sound, "Switching On" sees LIFE incorporate future-facing elements of electronic instrumentation with more experimental and brooding guitar/bass work, while reflective lyrics look back over the band’s journey together and what is yet to come.
The single is also accompanied by a new video, which has been directed and produced by the band with the help of local filmmaker Josh Moore (who has also collaborated with the band on all of their recent videos). The video channels Wes Anderson-esque color palettes and symmetrical shots, combining frenetic lighting with dating style video monologues from houseplants trying to find love. Watch and listen to it HERE.
Speaking on the single, frontman Mez Green says, “After completing ‘A Picture of Good Health’ I felt like I belonged in the world, lyrically painting over the bone-eating demons, I wanted to express why this was. I wanted to scratch it out like people do on woodland trees or moorland rocks. It was love; I found love.
‘Switching On’ is my lyrical attempt of charting that journey; the initial giddy, nervous and pinch-me moments, the wanting to be accepted, the lust and the incredible feeling of finding that person and falling in love.
The band wanted to be open to all aspects of musicality so that the lyrics were given an aural heart.  We wanted to be brave, bold and exciting as we evolve our sound and rhythms by bringing in elements of synths, pads, machines and pure bass and guitar experimentation.
‘Switching On’ is a nod to where we want to be and where we are going; the future.”
2019 was an incendiary year for the band, which saw them release their critically acclaimed second album A Picture Of Good Health, earning plaudits from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music (4 playlisted singles + Album Of the Day) and BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunder’s Album Of The Weekend) as well as being selected as Liz Kershaw’s Album Of The Year on BBC 6 Music. Similarly, the album has received high praise from a number of major publications (e.g. Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan & Paste) as well as featuring in end of year lists from the likes of the Guardian, Dork and more.
The new single also follows the recent announcement of a new run of tour dates to take place across the UK in April 2020. The dates come on the heels of the band’s recent arena tour as main support for Kaiser Chiefs and also follows on from their own packed-out UK/EU headline tour and unforgettable album launch in a Camden kebab shop. 
Alongside the new UK tour dates the band have also just played a short string of French shows - where they also made a big impact over the last year, recently appearing on national TV alongside Primal Scream and IDLES for Jehnny Beth’s new TV show ECHOES  and will return for further live dates in late-April. Elsewhere, LIFE will be playing at New Colossus Festival in New York later this week – they will play both the launch party and will support A Place To Bury Strangers at Brooklyn’s Bowery Ballroom. Despite SXSW's cancellation, LIFE will still travel to Austin to play an array of shows that will be finalized very soon. New Colossus set times and full tour dates listed below.
