Isaac Slade, frontman of The Fray, has said he wants to punch The Killers‘ singer Brandon Flowers “in the mouth”.
The singer, whose band released their new album ‘Scars & Stories’ earlier this month, has called out Flowers after he saw him making some comments about The Fray on YouTube.
He told the Daily Star: “When we started making the album, I saw footage on YouTube of Brandon getting mad at a Killers crowd who were a little sedate. Brandon was yelling, ‘Come on, stand up and dance. This isn’t a fucking Fray show’.”
Slade added that though he had to acknowledge his band’s crowds tended to be quite sedate, he’d still have to teach Flowers a lesson when they next met.
He added: “All I could do was laugh because that’s true – we do have a very thoughtful, sensitive crowd who don’t get to dance much. Still, I’ll pay Brandon back for picking on our fans. Next time I see him I’ll have to punch him in the mouth.”
