The Killers have finally announced the new release date for their upcoming Imploding the Mirage.
The album is set to drop August 21st via Island Records. “COVID-19 monkey wrenched us. But we persevered. Folks, mark your calendars,” the band wrote on Instagram. Though it was originally supposed to release in May, the album was delayed “due to delays in finalizing the album.”
The forthcoming sixth album was produced by the band along with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen. It marks the first albums written and recorded since leaving their hometown of Las Vegas. It also features guest spots from Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel (War On Drugs), Blake Mills, and Lucius.
Along with the new release date, the band also shared a new music video for “My Own Soul’s Warning.” Previously, they shared the singles “Caution,” “Fire in Bone,” and “Blowback.” Watch the video below.

The Killers were forced to cancel their remaining 2020 North American and Australian tour dates due to the ongoing pandemic.
“As so many of us have come to realize 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 Killers wrote in a statement. “With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our planned North American and Australian tour dates slated for the Fall. The safety of our fans and families is of the utmost importance to us always. We want nothing more to hit the road and play these songs for you and when the time is right, we will do just that! Be safe and be healthy. We appreciate you.”
