The Killers have offered fans a taste of their forthcoming record, Imploding The Mirage, with brand new single ‘Dying Breed’.

This is the fourth album cut we’ve heard so far, and marks the last single the band will release before the album arrives on Friday, August 21st. Following on from ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’, ‘Fire In Bones’ and the Lindsey Buckingham collaboration, ‘Caution’.

The Killers debuted the song during an Instagram live stream back in April. The band were originally set to release Imploding The Mirage back in May, but subsequently postponed that albums release amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Imploding the Mirage boasts an impressive roster of collaborators, including contributions from Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel (War On Drugs), Blake Mills and Lucius.

The Killers were set to grace Australian shores this November, unfortunately coronavirus had different plans, and the band were forced to postpone their scheduled appearance.

“As so many of us have come to realise during the Covid-19 pandemic, the idea that we would be returning to ‘normal’ is farther along in the future than we initially thought,” the band shared in a statement at the time.

“With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our planned North American and Australian tour dates slated for the Fall.
