the Killers have announced an upcoming headlining tour in support of their forthcoming album. Titled Sam's Town, after the album's lead off track.

As an odd piece of trivia, frontman Brandon Flowers worked at the Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas and Sam's Town is another casino in the city. Both casinos have acted as sites for the BYO-sponsored Punk Rock Bowling.

The record is due out October 3rd, 2006 and follows the band's 2004 breakthrough Hot Fuss which some attribute/blame for the 80s-style garage rock revival.
