    Default New KILLERS Album is Upon Us. We are so Blessed

    Happy New Fucking Year

    "Mr. Brightside" rides again! The Killers will "definitely" put out a new album this year, frontman Brandon Flowers confirmed this morning in an interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. "It's just whether it's the summertime or the wintertime," Flowers said of the release date for the Las Vegas band's yet-to-be-titled fourth album.

    In fact, a few songs for the new album are already in the can, including a "killer" new track called "Battle Born," Flowers told the BBC. Expect the Killers to try to bring it all back home on this album: "I think the consensus within the band is to take those things that we've done well and really hone in on that," Flowers said. "We don't want to make Hot Fuss 2 or Sam's Town 2, or Day & Age 2. We'll maybe take all that stuff, the best of all of it and do what we know how to do."

    As with British post-punks Bloc Party, whose frontman Kele Okereke revealed new album plans on the same radio show yesterday, the Killers' return was hardly a sure bet. Flowers and Co.'s most recent album was 2008's Day & Age, and the band announced a temporary hiatus in early 2010. Later that year, Flowers issued Vegas-themed solo debut Flamingo, and drummer Ronnie Vannuci followed with his own Big Talk last July.

    That said, the Killers have been hinting at a new album for a while now. Last May, Vannucci told SPIN the band would be reuniting that week in their own Battle Born Studios creative song title, guys! to start work on the new record. They've also played occasional live shows since starting their break in February 2010, including sets last year in London's Hyde Park and as part of Lollapalooza Chile. Late last year, the Killers continued an annual tradition with the release of a holiday single and video, "The Cowboy's Christmas Ball," which raised a timeless question: Are they human, or are they square-dancer?

    Time to stab myself in the ear with a Phillips screwdriver
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    I predict two or three songs that will sound great on their eventual singles comp, a lot of filler, and a lot of bitching when the Coachella 2013 lineup is released.

    So they're doing shows this summer, including one at the venue I work at: a 1500 person theater. Just signed up to work the show.

    I don't see what's so bad about the music in that trailer. Plenty of other bands doing the same sort of thing.

    Do people in the Polls section even bother with "worst taste on the board" threads anymore?

    A friend of mine, who is a mormon, showed me this the other day. He is a big fan of Brandon Flowers and The Killers.

    Yeah. Apparently, his solo album is very Mormon-centered, according to my friend. The Killers not so much.

    I knew he was Mormon, I thought that was fairly common knowledge. I enjoyed Flamingo and his Coachella set sounded like a fun one what with some of the band coming out for a few tunes.
