The Killers are set to make their much-anticipated return with their fourth studio album, “Battle Born” on 17th September 2012.

The Las Vegas-based band unveiled their comeback single, “Runaways” on both US and UK Radio today; Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 slot here in Britain and on KROQ Radio in America.

“Runaways” is a slow building track before exploding into the big chorus that we have come to know and love The Killers for and an undeniable nod to the winning Americana formula of 2006’s “Sam’s Town”.

The Killers announced they were taking a break following the end of their “Day & Age” World Tour in 2009.

There are no details of an accompanying tour as yet but The Killers are set to return to UK shores for the first time since their triumphant gig at London’s Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park last summer with a much-anticipated slot at V Festival in August.

The Killers are back!
