Published Aug 13, 2008Love em or hate em, theres no denying the fashion trends and massive hits that Las Vegas new wave popsters the Killers have produced with their first two albums, 2004s Hot Fuss and 2006s Sams Town. As such, the arrival of their as-yet-untitled new record will likely make a huge impression on modern radio with what are sure to be some more massive hits.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the band revealed some details about the upcoming release. "Everything is at stake on this album, said vocalist Brandon Flowers. "Everything.

We learned that you cant please everyone, but weve got faith in what we do, faith in our fans and faith in the soon-to-be-converted.
