The Killers

They called it their “Everest”. Now, The Killers’ day has come. It’s just after midsummer in Wembley Stadium. A crest of arms bearing the words ‘Battle Born’ sits atop the stage. Two lightning strikes run down each side, pointing below...

The Killers - 'Runaways'

Well, it’s good to know they’re not fucking about. Four years after ‘Day & Age’ saw them dip their toe into dancier waters, The Killers make their grand return with the Killersiest comeback single you could ever hope to hear. And frankly,...

The Killers: 'Sawdust'

It’s hard to dislike The Killers. No, scratch that. It’s actually really easy to dislike The Killers. It always has been, ever since Brandon Flowers first launched his guy-lined mug on to the world’s stage, preening in hammy monotone about...

Who ever told Brandon Flowers to start aping The Boss had their heart well and truly in the right place, but did they know it would come to this in the end? Depending on how you look at it, this tune is either utterly amazing, or an embarrassing...
