The Killers’ 2020 is going to be (don’t hate us for this) killer.
On Friday (Nov. 15), the Las Vegas-founded band formally announced the release of their new studio effort. Titled Imploding the Mirage, the group’s sixth studio effort will reportedly see a release time frame of spring 2020.
Taking to social media, the four-piece made the formal announcement.
Things began to unravel during the early morning hours when the band posted a message which read “People of Earth.” Considering one of their massive hits is called “Spaceman,” it was a bit of a headscratcher at first.
Several hours after that post, the Killers returned to reveal not only the album’s title but a United Kingdom / Ireland-centric tour for spring 2020.
Fans who pre-order the album by Nov. 19 (at 4 p.m.) will have early access to pre-sale tickets.
Not a bad deal if you live in the United Kingdom or Ireland.
Because all the new album information and tour details weren’t enough, the band left one last set of breadcrumbs for their followers.
“Future musical teasing imminent,” the quartet posted.
Leave it to the Killers to get formal with their new music teasing.
The confirmation of a new record isn’t that much of a surprise. Back in October, the band had posted a list of potential song titles on Instagram. Working titles included “Blowback,” “Party People,” “Spirit of Mystery,” and more.
Imploding the Mirage is the follow-up to 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful.
Earlier this year, the group unleashed their politically charged song “Land of the Free.”
Next weekend, the Killers will take over Fort Lauderdale Beach for the 2019 incarnation of 104.3 the Shark’s Riptide Music Festival. The Killers join The 1975, The Revivalists, Silversun Pickups, Judah & the Lion, Catfish and the Bottleman, and more on the bill.
