Founded by Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning in Las Vegas, 2001, The Killers have become arguably the most successful rock band from Nevada. After their hit 2004 debut album Hot Fuss, with singles such as “Somebody Told Me” and “Mr. Brightside,” the band established themselves as one of the biggest acts of the post-punk revival, with a sound that fused the energetic indie rock of the 2000s with the New Wave sounds of the ‘80s. Subsequent hits such as “When You Were Young” and “Human”, in addition to a number of Christmas singles, helped them to sustain their popularity through to the end of the decade.
After Hot Fuss, the group released three more studio albums and a Greatest Hits collection before a long hiatus, from which they returned in 2017 with Wonderful Wonderful. Although delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage, was released on August 21st, 2020, followed shortly after by Pressure Machine in 2021.
