In the Post #92: The Killers preview new album ‘Battle Born’ with album trailer and reveal of track ‘Runaways’

The Killers are back, the Killers are back after 4 years and some solo projects, the Killers are back! With what? A epic(ish), kind of sulky-looking Hollywood trailer. At least there are no dubstep robots in this one, thank god!

All in all, it’s very dramatic and nothing particularly musically interesting appears. However, fans of Brandon Flowers looking broody and interesting will love to know that it features many shots of your hero! And yep, you guessed it: lots of the Vegas-based showman looking broody and interesting. Or at least his attempts at that, without just looking a bit sad and mopey. Fire burns in the background and The Killers, revealed one by one, are present. To what extensive purpose though, is not explained.

What can we learn from this trailer about the forthcoming album ‘Battle Burns’? Not a lot really, but as I said if you are fan of moody-looking men trying their hand at acting, then look no further. Next we’ll see Radiohead stand in front of a computer looking confused for 2 minutes…stranger things have happened, right?

Editor’s note:
also included below under the album trailer video, is a stream of ‘Runaways’, the first song to be revealed from the new album ‘Battle Born’. Early consensus (or maybe ‘complaints’ is the better word to use here) is that it’s sounding awfully like Brandon Flowers’ ‘Flamingo’ solo work.
