^ WATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH BRANDON FLOWERS OF THE KILLERS revealing the secrets of behind ‘the MAN’
The Killers fresh off a spectacular run around the world festival circuit including a memorable night under the Chicago skyline with an epic set. They now ready the release of a new album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ (due out this Friday) and a huge arena tour that brings them to the United Center on January 19th (ENTER TO WIN TICKETS HERE).
So revving up the hype machine with Rolling Stone, Killers front man Brandon Flowers dished dirt on whether or not there was a political influence on the new record, crying at U2 shows, and the lasting impact of ‘Mr. Brightside’. The song was a massive smash off their breakthrough debut ‘Hot Fuss’ in 2004, and still retains emotional weight in the alternative music universe. Just pull the song up on Youtube, it’s video has been viewed over 237 million times. Yeah, that does’nt ‘open up your eagle eyes’ to it’s success, than what will?
When asked about the song’s long afterlife, he said the following: ” I hope it doesn’t eclipse anything else we’re doing. It just keeps snowballing and getting bigger. That said, anybody that’s ever started a band envisions something like that happening to them. It’s incredible. I can’t complain.”
Let’s just hope Flowers stays healthy on his mountain bikle and is ready for January at the UC.
