We had to wait a little longer than we wanted to - but after a Covid delay - The Killers finally released their 6th studio album, Imploding The Mirage, in 2020. And it was worth the wait we might add...

Well- Brandon Flowers and company wasted no time in getting to work on their 7th album - and are back in the studio ... with an old friend - guitarist Dave Keuning, who left the band in 2017 for a solo career.
The band pulled the curtain back a bit via an Instagram post - with band members donning masks inside a studio while a snippet of new music plays in the background (!!!).
They also posted what appears to be a track list for the new record....
Flowers opened up to NME about the record last year -
“Every time someone makes a record they say that they have 50 songs and they’re going to release another record. We really are.
We’re going to release another one in about 10 months. We’ve already gone back into the studio with [Jonathon, producer] Rado and Shawn [Everett, producer]. We did a week in Northern California.
I had a lot of time on my hands. Before I’d normally be gearing up to tour, all of that time has gone back into writing more songs. It’s been pretty fruitful.”
Speaking of tours - we are sill waiting on that DC show at the Capital One Arena to be rescheduled once tours are back!
