🚀COLDPLAY PREMIERE THEIR NEW SINGLE 'HIGHER POWER' FROM SPACE✨

The Offical "The Killers" Thread


Recommended Posts

The Killers' guitarist Dave Keuning admits he is 'sick' of touring

"I am sick of this. I'm done. The end is in sight," he tells NME

 

 

Both frontman Brandon Flowers and drummer Ronnie Vanucci commented on Stoermer's absence from the band's Asian gigs, with Vanucci saying: "I don't want to blow the top on it. Being part of this machine is physical and mentally exhausting." Asked if the band would carry on if Stoermer quit, he adds: "I'd hope we'd keep trucking on. But at the same time, it isn't the same band."

What is the name of their song about rattle this ghost town that is played on the radio a lot?

This may sound like a stupid question, but the radio stations over here don"t announce their songs.

 

Although I know most of their songs I have no clue...

Runaways, maybe? That one springs to mind with having the lyric "Like a stumbling ghost, I haunt these halls"...

 

By the way, there's a giveaway of tickets to a small show in November in Paradiso in Amsterdam, through their fanclub The Victims. They may all be snapped up by now (I think they're first-come first-serve basis), but you can still enter.

God, they've become so bad since Battle Born, I just can't stand Brandon's voice on most of that album and the new songs are TERRIBLE, Shot at The Night and Just Another Girl are generic as hell, and Christmas in LA is seriously annoying. Right now I just wish they split up before things get worse.

 

 

They could have done such a good job exploring that mexican side they showed on Happy Birthday Guadalupe and the Hotel California cover, but they went to a generic pop rock Bon Jovi-like music that I just can't stand.

People is always complaining about how Coldplay has changed, overall in the last 2 albums, and I feel the same way with The Killers. What happened to them? I know that bands have to evolve and don't repeat themselves and blah, blah, blah... but their last 2 albums have been very weak. Do you think they can be as good as in the first 2 albums again?

I agree that the last 2 albums have not been my fav but they are my top 10 got to bands. I have seen them 5 times, they never let you down, they get you in the gut and they know how to write the hell out of a song. Brandon's voice gets me where i want to go

Sam's Town is their best album imo. They are in my top 5 fav bands. The last two albums aren't as strong but they are one of those bands who can produce a cracker of a tune from every album! The Way It Was and Be Still <3

Here With Me from Battle Born is also epic, IMO. To be heard loud. :)
