The Killers Add Leeds Date

Today, american alt-rockers The Killers have announced a one-off UK headline show at Leeds' O2 Academy on Friday August 17th, which will act as a warm-up for the band's headline sets at V Festival on the following two days.

Having only last week dropped the single Runaways, the show will most likely see the band debuting further songs from their new album Battle Born, due for release on September 17th.

A series of producers worked on the album, including Madonna collaborator Stuart Price, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor and Brendan O'Brien. Songs confirmed to appear on the album include Heart Of A Girl, Flesh And Bone, Carry Me Home as well as new single Runaways.

Speaking about the album's title, the band's frontman Brandon Flowers said:

"Whenever I needed help, lyrically, I thought of that phrase and it helped me… There's some triumphant moments."

As the band's first album for over four years, Battle Born is the follow-up to the band's 2008 effort Day & Age and is the fourth album of their career to date.
