The Killers recently sold-out their Massey Hall concert date in Toronto on November 18th!! Fans will be thrilled to know that The Killers are now scheduled to return to Toronto and will take the stage at the Air Canada Centre on January 23rd!!

Even before their debut album, Hot Fuss, was released in 2004, The Killers were selling out headlining shows. The Las Vegas group's tense, stylish brand of rock is rooted in the glam and New Wave sounds of the 1980s and 1990s. With their smart originality and undeniable talent, they have helped breathe fresh air into today's alt-rock landscape.

Inspiration has never eluded Las Vegas' The Killers, and it is a damn good thing it has not, because their newest record, their third studio album entitled Day & Age, is full of their finest songs to date. Day & Age will be released on November 25, 2008 and the first single is entitled ""Human."" "I think about moments when we were coming up with 'When You Were Young,' or, in this case, 'Spaceman,'" Flowers says. "If we'd decided at that moment, 'Let's go to the park,' they might not have happened. It's scary. It almost makes me not want to stop because I could be missing out on these wonderful songs. They're out there for the taking—you've just got to grab them."

Together with bassist Mark Stoermer, guitarist Dave Keuning, and drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Flowers helped to mold the album into 10 songs that work best together as a whole, each individually describing an evolution of the Las Vegas band's sound. "We're always pushing ourselves," says Stoermer, "and there's a lot of diversity here—from anthemic rock to dance songs." Flowers adds: "We felt like Sam's Town was a continuation of Hot Fuss, and we feel like this is a continuation of Sam's Town. But at the same time, Day & Age is totally different from both of them, while still sounding like us. It's kind of looking at Sam's Town from Mars."
