About this album

Battle Born is the fourth studio album by American rock band The Killers, released on September 17, 2012 on Vertigo Records. The phrase “Battle Born” appears on the state flag of Nevada, and is the name of the band’s home studio where the majority of the album was recorded.

Recorded following an extended hiatus, the band worked with five producers during the recording of the album: Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Brendan O’Brien, Stuart Price and Daniel Lanois.

Working at their Las Vegas studio, Battle Born, the band worked with producers, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Brendan O’Brien, Stuart Price and Daniel Lanois. Initially, the band had wanted to work with just one, however, scheduling provided difficult for each.

The album was partially mixed by Alan Moulder who also worked on the band’s first two albums.

On June 7, 2012, The Killers released a trailer for their new album Battle Born. The track listing was announced on August 16. Battle Born was released on September 17, 2012 in the United Kingdom and on September 18 in the United States. On the same date, the album was released as a vinyl disc.


The first single from the album is “Runaways”, which received its first radio play on July 10, 2012.The single was leaked on Tumblr only hours before its official radio preview.

    a strange little album. it's my least favorite of theirs, but at the same time, a handful of the songs are some of my all-time favorite.
