There’s a lot going on about killing lately (look out for other similar band names!). The Killers hail from Las Vegas and create songs that remind of Interpol, Duran Duran and Blondie, talk about jealousy, paranoia, murderers, Studio 54 AIDS victims, androgynous girlfriends and cuckolded boyfriends and are performed by the 22 year old Brandon Flowers.
You can find this crazy blend inside “Hot Fuss”, their debut album, which features eleven tracks and is to be released on June 7.
They are also soon on the road for a UK tour that starts on May 23 and will culminate with an appearance at T in the Park Festival on July 11. Check out the video for Mr Brightside until then!
