The dates see the band playing their fourth show at New York City’s prestigious Madison Square Garden, among other venues. Tegan and Sara will support on all dates, which are listed below.

Battle Born,named after the words emblazoned on the Nevada state flag, in addition to sharing its name with the band’s recording studio, is everything Killers fans have waited for since the band announced they would be taking a short hiatus at the start of 2010.BattleBorn,already being heralded as one of the most anticipated albums of 2012, is simply The Killers doing what they do best and then some: the choruses are grander, the guitars are heavier, the drums more powerful, the vocals more commanding – all sounding quintessentially Killers while sounding bigger and better than ever before. It is an album that, like its namesake and the band that created it, does not back down from its own strengths.

Battle Born’sfirst single,“Runaways,”is available for purchase now via all digital service providers.PRESS HEREto watch the song’s video.
