The Killers - Runaways

"Why you wanna fight it?"

After what seems like a long hiatus, the Killers are finally back with a new single! Those hoping for a sound that hearkens back to their debut are bound to be a little disappointed, since Runaways sounds a lot like a missing track from Sam's Town. In other words, it's a dramatic stadium rock number with a heavy Springsteen influence and some big guitar riffs. I'm not complaining, as I personally loved Sam's Town. Still, on first listen this is no When We Were Young. It might sound very similar, but I'm not sure the hooks are quite as strong. I don't know... maybe it's a grower. I suspect so. The song is from their upcoming album, Battle Born. If the rest of the tracks are more-or-less in the same vein as this one, I think I'll be satisfied.
