Vegas rockers The Killers' nearly 15 year-long discography is celebrated in one place with the 7-volume, 180g 10LP Career Box complete with a slip mat featuring the "K" from the band's logo and inspired by the vintage lights of the Las Vegas Strip. This career retrospective marks the first time that all seven of the band's albums have been collected in one complete box set including: Hot Fuss, Sam's Town, Sawdust, Day & Age, Battle Born and Wonderful Wonderful plus Live From The Royal Albert Hall which makes its vinyl debut.
Originally released on DVD, Live From The Royal Albert Hall captures the kinetic energy of The Killers' historic shows at the revered venue in 2009 and is now available as a double LP exclusive to the Career Box. The collection also includes their mid-career compilation album, Sawdust, which contains B-sides, covers and remixes, as well as an outtake from Sam's Town, and "Tranquilize," featuring a guest appearance by Lou Reed.
Now selling out stadiums and playing tributes at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Killers indie days are certainly well behind them. And yet it seems just like yesterday that every 20-something was blaring "Mr Brightside" from the band's 3x platinum 2004 debut. Even 14 years later, their most enduring single remains firmly in the charts, having just enjoyed its 200th week in the Billboard Top 100.
After Hot Fuss ushered in their signature post-new wave sound with massive hooks, they continued on their course of amassing hit after hit of transcendent anthems with follow-up Sam's Town and its Springsteen-eque singalong "When You Were Young." With each album, the group flexes their versatility, from the garage rock-pop of Hot Fuss to electro-clash energy of Day & Age to the stadium rocker of Battle Born and most recently 2017's funk-infused Wonderful Wonderful, which snagged the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
