1. The Killers is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2001 and consist of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums, percussion). The band’s four studio albums to date have sold in excess of 18 million copies worldwide combined. The band got its name from the fictional band “The Killers” in the video for New Order’s “Crystal”. The band was on hiatus, but returned to the studio to record their 4th studio album in early 2011. Songfacts reports that “Runaways”, the first single from “Battle Born”, was released on July 10, 2012.
Initially, The Killers played at large clubs in Las Vegas. With the band’s line-up stable and their repertoire of songs expanding, the band began to attract attention from talent bookers, local agents, major label, scouts — and a UK representative for Warner Bros. Though the Warner Bros representative passed on the band, he took the demo back with him, showing it to a friend who worked at UK (London-based) indie label Lizard King Records (now Marrakesh Records).

    Natanaelbp: Mas ouvintes no lastfm não definem nada. U2 é uma das bandas que mais lucram com tour, que mais venderam discos e que tem mais conquistas importantes na carreira. O The Killers é ótimo também, mas nem se compara baseado em fatos. Porém gosto pessoal já são outros 500.
