website says deluxe ships around 4/30

the extras are basically the b-sides and remixes of the singles, so there's a bit of an overlap with the Sounds of Science.

why do promoters feel a strong need to appoint The Killers as a headline act in a major festival setting??? Who out there really gives that much of a shit about them??

i bet the killers are fun live. i know they got bad live reviews earlier in their career, but maybe that was just growing pains. for the most part their music is pretty fun, so there isn't any reason we shouldn't expect a big show from them. hope they deliver.

I saw the Killers at their secret Webster Hall show for Sam's Club or whatever the f that album was called. It was the most boring show I went to that year. And I'm a big fan of Hot Fuss.

Extremely disappointing for a so-called "stadium act."

The Killers arent amazing, groundbreaking, or life changing, but there fun as hell. so whatever, what's wrong with getting drunk and dancing to the Killers outdoors with some beautiful girls and weather?

the original Jimmy James with the Hendrix samples is quite good.
