Do Some Calisthenics To The Killers 'Runaways'

    There's always a mix of excitement and nervousness when a tried-and-true favorite like these Las Vegas boys release something new. Today The Killers released the first taste of their new album Battle Born, and it's appropriately bombastic. Not sure where "Runaways" sits in the pantheon of their climax-tastic catalogue, but it's got all the core components of a Flowersian battle-hymn. A synth-driven keyboard riff, all-American imagery, Springseen-esque vocals, and a chorus like a mountaintop. Color us satisfied so far.

    Battle Born is out 9/17.
