Shortly after releasing their best album in ages with 2020's Imploding the Mirage, The Killers said they were already working on a new album for 2021, and that guitarist Dave Keuning (who sat Imploding the Mirage out) would be back for it. Today they've announced that the new album is called Pressure Machine and due August 13 via Island (pre-order). It was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, the same team as Imploding the Mirage No music is out from it yet, but you can watch a new teaser video below. That's the artwork above.

Brandon Flowers said in a press release that, when the pandemic hit, "everything came to this grinding halt, and it was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence. And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records."

The band also announced a headlining tour for 2022, including two nights at NYC's Madison Square Garden: September 30 and October 1. As planned for The Killers' cancelled 2020 tour, The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr will open. Tickets for those shows (and the whole tour) go on sale Friday (7/23) at 10 AM local time, with presales beforehand.

Last month, The Killers released a collaborative remake of "A Dustland Fairytale" with Bruce Springsteen.
