During the early years
of the Killers, the band began playing local clubs and venues in the local Las Vegas area. Once they were signed, they started
recording their debut studio album, "Hot Fuss," which was released in the summer of 2004. The album produced a number of catchy
hits, like "Somebody Told Me," "Mr. Brightside," and "All These Things That I've Done," all of which remained fixtures on
the radio for years to come. In the UK, the album went 7x platinum, and in the US, it was certified 3x platinum with a peak
position of number 7 on the Billboard 200, and it broke into the charts all over the world. With its unique blend of indie
rock and new wave, the album was a phenomenal success worldwide, and it has gone on to sell millions of copies.
Killers followed up in 2006 with their second studio album, "Sam's Town," which featured a more stripped-down feel without
the use of production techniques like auto-tune. "Sam's Town" entered the Billboard 200 chart at the number 2 position, and
it launched the chart-topping hit "When You Were Young," which also picked up a Grammy Award nomination in the category of
Best Rock Song and Best Short Form Music Video. Like their debut album, "Sam's Town" has also sold millions of copies, and
it was listed by Q magazine as one of the best albums of the decade.
The Killers continued on their unstoppable streak
of success, and they released their third studio album "Day & Age," in 2008. Fans loved the playful, fresh sound of the
album, which produced popular tracks like "Human," "Spaceman," "The World We Live In," and "A Dustland Fairytale." Like the
albums before it, "Day & Age" has been enormously successful, with over 3 million copies of the album sold globally.
Killers' most recent album is their 2012 release, "Battle Born," which was named after their recording studio. "Battle Born"
was another notch in the Killers' successful track record, with a debut of number 3 on the Billboard 200 and hitting the top
10 in countries around the world. During the year of its release, the album sold approximately 1 million copies, and it was
later voted by Rolling Stone readers as being one of the best albums of the year.
Killers' Breakthrough Album
Killer's Breakthrough album, "Hot Fuss," was just the beginning of the phenomenal success that they would experience over
the decade that followed. Released in 2004, "Hot Fuss" produced the hits "Somebody Told Me," "All These Things That I've Done,"
and "Mr. Brightside," which enjoyed heavy airplay on stations all over. Proving that they were here to stay, the band followed
up in 2006 with their second album, "Sam's Town," which went on to sell millions of copies and spawned the mega-successful
hit, "When You Were Young." The Killers continued to release more successful albums, including "Day & Age" and "Battle
Born." In addition to their commercial success, the Killers have received plenty of accolades and awards, including 7 Grammy
Award nominations and more than 20 NME Award nominations. At the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards, the Killers won in the category
of Best Rock Group, and they were also awarded the esteemed Vanguard Award by the ASCAP in 2010.
