The Killers

Bio

There are at least six groups named The Killers, the most known being an an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2001. 1. The Killers is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2001. Their line-up is: Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, backing vocals), Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums, percussion). They got the name from the fictional band The Killers in the video for New Order's song Crystal. As of 2021, the band has released six studio albums, which have sold 28 million records worldwide. The Early Years Initially, The Killers played at large clubs in Las Vegas. With the band's line-up stable and their repertoire of songs expanding, the band began to attract attention from talent bookers, local agents, major label, scouts — and a UK representative for Warner Bros. Though the Warner Bros representative passed on the band, he took the demo back with him, showing it to a friend who worked at UK (London-based) indie label Lizard King Records (now Marrakesh Records). The Killers then signed in the summer of 2002 to a British label. Hot Fuss They released their debut album Hot Fuss on June 2004 in the United Kingdom and US (on Island Records). Their first single was Somebody Told Me. The band also had chart success with their singles Mr. Brightside, which reached the Top 10 in the UK when released, and All These Things That I've Done. Sam's Town The band started recording its second album, Sam's Town, on February 15, 2006, at The Palms Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas. It was released on October 2006. The first single, When You Were Young debuted on radio stations in late July 2006. In late August 2006, it was offered as a downloadable track before the album's debut. The single then entered the chart on downloads alone at #5, and the following week on its official release went to #2 in the UK. The video clip of the second single, Bones, was directed by Tim Burton. The third single was Read My Mind. The video for it was filmed in Tokyo, Japan. The last one was For Reasons Unknown, released in June, 2007. The album sold over 700,000 copies worldwide in the first week of release, with a No. 2 debut on the United World chart.
