So excited to say our iTunes session came out yesterday (get it here: smarturl.it/so8ymg ). It’s got live and acoustic versions of songs from Hummingbird, along with our two favorite acoustic versions from Gorilla Manor (“Wide Eyes” and “Who Knows, Who Cares”). We also worked out a cover of the amazingly talented King Krule’s “Out Getting Ribs”. Hope you dig it as much as we did making it. Tracklisting below. -K

Check out The Canvas Waiting’s song “An Island Now”. It’s perfect if you’re feeling a bit sad about breakup, but it’s still wonderful if you’re not.
Check out HAIM’s take on Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”. Of course people have mixed reactions, but watch it and see for yourself what you think of it!
Mumford and Sons have decided to take a break. This is sad news for Mumford fans, but it can’t really be much of a surprise. Click here to read the entire article on Rolling Stone.

Listen to the new Killers’ single “Shot At The Night”. It premiered on Zane Lowe’s radio show about 25 minutes ago, and already Victims are in love.
Make sure you tune into Zane Lowe’s radio show on BBC Radio 1 tomorrow (September 16) to hear Brandon Flowers of The Killers premiere their new track. Check here to see what time it will be playing in your time zone, and listen live on the website!
Listen to High Highs cover College’s “A Real Hero”, from the Drive soundtrack. If you’ve never heard of these guys, go check out their song Open Season as well. I actually got the chance to speak with them briefly at Hopscotch Festival last weekend, and they’re really cool guys. Definitely give them a listen.
The Killers have posted yet another cryptic tweet, including nothing but this image. It has been announced that they plan to release a Greatest Hits album, but the band deleted their last cryptic tweet containing the hashtag “#ShotAtTheNight”. Victims are left to speculate what it all means until The Killers make an official announcement.
