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).

    I've had Day & Age for a while, but never really listened to it until today, and am loving it so far.

    My favourite songs of The Killers are from Sam's Town (for reasons unknown and this river is wild) but Hot Fuss is their best album as a whole. Battle Born is very very bad. I thought they couldnt make anything worse than day & age but they released battle born lol D:

    Não estou dizendo que os outros álbuns são ruins. Pago pau pra tudo que esses homens fazem, gente. E Sam's Town costumava ser meu álbum preferido. Mas aí veio a delícia do Battle Born, e o resto vocês já sabem :))) [2]

    Sim, já ouvi. E quer saber? Muito barulhento. Battle Born e Day & Age são mais "limpos" e melhores. Sam's Town só When You Were Young e Read My Mind que realmente valem a pena.

    Sério que vocês acham Battle Born o melhor álbum? Já ouviram o Sam's Town?

    Diz que o último não foi tão bom, mas Battle Born é o melhor álbum. '-' [2] Exatamente. Não entendo como o povo faz questão de dizer que é o "pior" álbum, e o pior é o próprio Flowers acreditar nisso. O pessoal tem uma mania ~séria~de só pagar pau pro Hot Fuss.

    "Com o "The Desired Effect" confirma mais ainda de que Brandon Flowers (solo) é bem melhor que The Killers. Brandon S2." NÃO!
