Despite releasing their much-loved LP 'Imploding The Mirage' in August last year, The Killers have already announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving next month.
The new full-length 'Pressure Machine' will be co-produced by The Killers, Shawn Everett, and Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, and is set to arrive on the 13th August via EMI Records.
Speaking about the new release, frontman Brandon Flowers said, "Everything came to this grinding halt, and it was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence. And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records."
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. continued, "We were discussing [Brandon] moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere, and during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere."
While Flowers added, "I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with, many memories of my time in Nephi are tender. But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged. I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in."
