The Killers to headline BST Hyde Park Festival

The Killers have been announced as the sixth and final act to headline British Summer Time festival at London’s Hyde Park. The Las Vegas indie group will take the stage on Saturday, July 8, and will most probably perform new material alongside classics. They released ‘Battle Born’ four years ago, and started recording their long-awaited fifth album in September with U2 producer Jacknife Lee. Last week, they revealed the songs sound “heavier than anything we’ve ever done”.
