Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Recording information: Battle Born Studio, Las Vegas, NV; Blackbird Studios, Nashville, TN.
  • Photographers: Hirakawa; Wyatt Boswell.
  • Las Vegas-based post-punk/new wave pop provocateurs the Killers took a two-year hiatus after the release of 2008's Day & Age, allowing vocalist Brandon Flowers and drummer Ronnie Vannucci the opportunity to release some long-gestating solo material, and providing the remaining members some much needed time off. After reconvening in early 2011, the band got to work on its fourth studio album, enlisting a small army of notable producers, including Daniel Lanois, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Stuart Price, and Brendan O'Brien. The resulting 12-track Battle Born was preceded by the predictably ambitious and soaring first single, "Runaways."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The fourth Killers record might be their wildest neon-Springsteen fever dream yet."

Entertainment Weekly (p.137) - "BATTLE BORN is a testament to spirit and sheer will. It's an album about injecting a little majesty into the mundane and holding your head high..." -- Grade: B

Billboard (p.44) - "[T]he tone is serious and occasionally somber. Frontman Brandon Flowers grapples with nostalgic melancholia on more than a few songs..."

Q (Magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thrilling victory of an album because at its heart it has the same great swirling mass of melancholic energy that drove their debut."

Paste (magazine) - "BATTLE BORN forges deeper into their distinctive traits and away from the compromises with radio or current trends....It's also their most consistent record since their debut..."
