Band Bio

Brandon Flowers was originally in a band called Blush Response, but when the other members decided to move to LA, Brandon refused, staying instead in Las Vegas. Looking to join another group, he responded to an ad in the paper placed by Dave Keuning. The two became instant friends, and started looking for a bass player and drummer to fill out the band. The first pair they recruited didn't last long, but next along came Stoermer and Vannucci, completing the famous line-up.


After a period of composing and rehearsing new material, the band secured bookings to play a number of Las Vegas clubs. At one of these gigs a talent spotter from the UK noticed the band - he passed the demo tape onto a friend, and as result the band got a contract with London based indie label Lizard King.


Their first album Hot Fuss was release in 2004, and achieved meteoric success. Hit single off the album included All These Things That I've Done, Mr Brightside, and Somebody Told Me.


Next came the album Sam's Town. Though not quite as popular as the first album (what could be?), it featured the 2 memorable singles When You Were Young, and Bones.


The band then released a compilation album Sawdust, which offers a mishmash of covers, and collaborations.


2008 saw the much-anticipated Day & Age, The Killer's 3rd studio album, hit the shelves. The Killers were back to their best, with a strong and creative record. The qwirky lyrics of the first single from the album, Human, had everyone rushing to find out about the journalist Hunter Thompson; Brandon Flowers mentioned he was the inspiration for the 'are we dancers' line.
