The Killers are an American rock band that was formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2001, by Brandon Flowers (lead vocals, keyboards) and Dave Keuning (guitar, backing vocals). Mark Stoermer (bass, backing vocals) and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums, percussion) would complete the current line-up of the band in 2002. The name The Killers is derived from a logo on the bass drum of a fictitious band, portrayed in the music video for the New Order song "Crystal".

I just can’t stop listening to this song, the chorus makes me wanna sing it too. I Feel It In My Bones is the band’s latest single and 7th actually which follows the 2007 Christmas, Don’t Shoot Me, Santa. These guys really rock at Christmas songs. Enjoy the song, and the video too which is actually kind of cute!
Ever heard of Dover, Delaware? You know, the capital city of that first U.S. state, located just under Pennsylvania and New Jersey and cut off from Maryland by one clean eastern border…The one with Dover International Speedway, Silver Lake, a quaint, down-home feel… And Firefly Music Festival? In late July of this year (the 20-22, [...]
Last year’s “Day & Age” LP by the Vegas gang, The Killers, was disappointingly mediocre; a blunt collection of dull and uncatchy pop songs, with a one or two exceptions of course. As a Killers fan, I became a bit dishearten of the band, but I then remembered I have two other, almost perfect pop [...]

The new album from The Killers, Day & Age, is right around the corner, with the release date of November 25th, getting ever closer. By the way, you’ve heard what other album lands on November 25th, right? I wasn’t really thrilled by the band’s latest single, Human, when it got out, but I’m confident Brandon [...]
The Killers are working hard and long prepping their third record for the highly anticipated release date of November 25, when “Day & Age” finally gets out. Last year’s rarities/B-sides box set, “Sawdust,” didn’t deliver at all and left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. I mean, it’s not that they’ve released any [...]
Vegas’ favorite quartet, [tag]The Killers[/tag], are back with a holiday special single, suggestively titled “Don’t Shoot Me Santa,” the second of this sort after last year’s A Great Big Sled. The video is beautifully unique and really well directed, by renowned Vegas native Matthew Grey Gubler, and catches on tape a regular Christmas in the [...]
A few weeks ago Vegas native [tag]The Killers[/tag] revealed their latest single, in the form of Joy Division cover, titled “Shadowplay.” Since then their efforts have been dismissed as very poor, not nearly enough delivering to the expectations that came with such a ambitious cover. Today, the video for Shadowplay premiered over at Spinner, featuring [...]
Yesterday we unveiled the Sawdust cover art and it seems we can’t get enough of [tag]The Killers[/tag] lately. If you didn’t found their Joy Division take to your liking, then give another try to their latest teaser “Tranquilize,” featuring Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed. It’s pretty much Killers work, nothing to fancy or unexpectedly brilliant, [...]
