This week sees the start of full-on Killers mania, as the band make not one but three appearances on your television in support of their brand new album, Day & Age, released today on Island Records. You can catch The Killers performing songs from Day & Age on Jimmy Kimmel Live TONIGHT (ABC; 12 am EST), The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tomorrow, Tuesday, November 25th (NBC; 11:35 pm EST), and a repeat of their October appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday, November 29th (NBC; 11:35 pm EST).

 

The Killers’ newest album, Day & Age, has received a rapturous reception from critics for its eclectic arrangements and superb songwriting.  Produced by Stuart Price (Les Rhythmes Digitales), Day & Age is filled with the soaring vocals and epic choruses that have won the band legions of fans, radio and chart hits and dozens of international awards.  First single “Human” is a global smash, giving the band a Top Ten radio hit in multiple countries, including the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway and Ireland. The band continues on their arena tour around the world, kicking off the US leg in Denver, Colorado on January 17th.

“…their third studio album expands their scope even further, adding subtle world-music accents to their glittery New Wave anthems…” – Rolling Stone
 
“…a refreshingly unpretentious mix of massive choruses and plush beats that recalls their breakthrough debut, Hot Fuss…” – Maxim
