Kill Hannah Premiere Final Song on Amazon

After 20 years and several albums, Kill Hannah announced in October that the band would cease to exist at the end of the year. Though the band will no longer exist, the group did reveal plans to end the band on a high note with some final shows. Now, with a just a week until those last couple of shows, Kill Hannah has unleashed their last, new song.

On Monday (Nov. 23), the band debuted a new song titled “This is Our December.” The track is currently featured on Amazon’s Indie For The Holidays seasonal playlist. At the moment, “This is Our December” can be purchased on Amazon or streamed on Amazon Prime, if you are a member.

As mention before, Kill Hannah will close out their career with a couple of shows. Their final set of shows will begin on Dec. 3 at Rock City in Nottingham, United Kingdom. After spending a couple of days across the pond, they will return to their hometown of Chicago to perform at the Metro on Dec. 19.

The hometown venue, according to the band, occupies a special place in their hearts. “We all wanted to play Metro one more time. It’s been our home forever, having played there more than any band in history – 42 times!” Quite a feat.

It’s starting to sound a lot like Christmas, like we didn’t already know by the way the radio stations and television channels have begun their month-long torture, we mean countdown, until the jolly holly holiday.

Last week The Killers gave us their yearly Christmas song about a piece of coal named Joel and today, New Found Glory have given us their own song for the holiday, The track is titled “Snow” and is currently being streamed over at Spotify, but for all you nice and naughty people put there, you listen to the track below.

New Found Glory are currently on the European leg of their tour in support of their eighth studio album/recently released record, Resurrection. The album was released back in October through Hopeless Records.

The Killers Introduce Us To Poor “Joel, the Lump of Coal”

Christmas is right around the corner, if you couldn’t already tell. We like to blame all the radio stations that began playing Christmas music Thanksgiving afternoon and the wonderful smell of sweat as people fight their way through Black Friday shopping.

But, the Christmas holiday would not be the same if The Killers had not released their annual Christmas song, something the four-piece have been doing for the past decade.

This year, the band have made a song in honor of a sad piece of coal named Joel.

The music video for the new song from the Las Vegas band premiered last night during Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show. Check out the story of poor “Joel, the Lump of Coal.”

Several times, the band have collaborate with other musicians on the holiday-centric songs and this year it was Kimmel’s turn.

Previously, The Killers have worked with Elton John, Pet Shop Boy’s Neil Tennant and more on their special holiday inspired songs.

As always all proceeds from the song will go to the AIDS charity (RED) which held their national (RED) day yesterday. The song is currently available for purchase over on iTunes.

The Killers Release Annual Christmas Video

Last week, The Killers revealed that Owen Wilson would be in the band’s music video for this year’s Christmas track from them, “Christmas in L.A.”

For the past seven years, the band have put out tracks in partnership with (RED), the organization founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale going to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.

The video starts with Owen Wilson asking the voice of Harry Dean for some advice for “someone trying to make it.” The mystical voice goes on to tell him just to do nothing. Fast forward to Wilson waking up on Christmas morning by himself with his Charlie Brown like tree with a small disco ball ornament and looking at a lonely Christmas card. His world then turns into animation, much like the Christmas card he sadly, looks upon.

Check out the full video, no matter how sad it seems.

But the Christmas track is not the only piece of Killers news to hit the web today. It was also confirmed that the Vegas-based band would be performing on the U.K.’s X-Factor finale alongside the likes of Elton John, One Direction and Katy Perry. The show will be going out with a bang this season with the finalist and the performers all taking the stage at Wembley Arena during a live broadcast on ITV.

The Killers are set to perform “Mr. Brightside” and “Humans” on the show on December 14.
