The Killers

The KillersThe Killers are an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2002, the group consists of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, vocals), and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (percussion, drums), with Ray Suen often providing support during live performances. Part of the post-punk revival movement, The Killers draw influence from ’80s new wave and post-punk bands such as New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, Duran Duran, and The Cars, as well as U2, Bruce Springsteen, and Lou Reed.

The group’s debut album, Hot Fuss (2004) brought the band mainstream success. Their sophomore effort, Sam’s Town, was released in 2006, and the compilation album Sawdust containing B-sides, rarities, and new material, was released in 2007. The group is currently working on their third album, entitled Day & Age, due out for release this November. According to Brandon Flowers, Human, the lead single from the new album sounds like “Johnny Cash meets the Pet Shop Boys” and confessed to not putting it on Sawdust as “it was too good“. Too synthpop, if you ask me…
