Win The Killers Direct Hits

On September 16th, 2003, four young men from Las Vegas took to the stage for their first ever London show, appearing fourth on the bill at Camden's Dublin Castle. It was the first time they had played a gig outside of North America.

Ten years on, that band has gone on to sell over 20 million albums, headlined festivals the world over, performed at the White House and picked up myriad awards. Each of The Killers' four studio albums has topped the UK charts (the band ranks in the Top 3 of Amazon's biggest selling artists of the past decade) and, this summer, they reached a summit very few artists have ever managed, headlining Wembley Stadium to an ecstatic capacity crowd. That Wembley Stadium show was a huge affirmation of The Killers' place in people's hearts and showed a group at the height of their powers and excited about the next chapter. In celebration of their first decade together, The Killers will release Direct Hits on November 11th. A collection of singles from their four albums, plus two brand new songs, the album begins with the band's breakthrough hit - and first song they wrote together - Mr Brightside. It follows the group from debut album Hot Fuss and its further singles, Somebody Told Me, Smile Like You Mean It and All These Things That I've Done, through Sam's Town's When You Were Young, Read My Mind and For Reasons Unknown, via Day & Age's singles, including massive 2008 hit, Human, and last year's stunning Battle Born album singles, kicking off with Runaways. A brace of brand new songs completes the set: Shot At The Night was recorded with M83's Anthony Gonzalez, and will be released as a single on November 4th. Just Another Girl, meanwhile, was produced by long time Killers collaborator Stuart Price.

CLOSING DATE: Monday 11th November 2013 23:23
