To say 2004 has been a good year for The Killers would perhaps be the understatement of 2004. The Las Vegas quartet have released debut album Hot Fuss, which has already well surpassed 1 million sales worldwide, had a UK top ten hit with Mr Brightside, released in May to huge critical acclaim, have since appeared on Top Of The Pops, CD:UK, Later with Jools Holland, and have even recorded a part on hit Channel 4 show The O.C, to be screened in the UK early next year.
Their hectic live schedule, including sell-out tours on both sides of the Atlantic and appearances at all the major UK festivals has helped to turn The Killers into one of the must-see, most talked about bands of the year. They boast Elton John, David Bowie, Noel Gallagher and Franz Ferdinand amongst their ever-growing array of A-list admirers.
The Killers plan to start 2005 with a bang. They re-release hit single Somebody Told Me on January 10 to coincide with a high profile headline tour, details of which are to be announced soon. Hype surrounding the single has already begun with the band performing exclusively on The Jonathan Ross Show on BBC1 on October 29.
