It wouldn’t be Christmastime without The Killers, as the band have been churning out their annual holiday singles for the (RED) campaign since 2006.

Brandon Flowers Working With Sky Ferreira Producer Ariel Rechtshaid On Sophomore Solo Album

Brandon Flowers certainly doesn’t slack in the music-making department. This past June marked the 10-year anniversary of his band The Killers’ debut LP Hot Fuss, and as a follow up to the quartet’s 2013 compilation Direct Hits — as well as his own 2010 solo album Flamingo — the Las Vegas pop-rock crooner has bee…

In recent years, it seems like people have been particularly egregious with their abuse of the winter calendar, moving right from Halloween decorations to Christmas lights. But not The Killers.

Watch The Killers Perform “Shot At The Night” On ‘Ellen’

The Killers just gave a grand rendition of “Shot At The Night” on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week, and they didn’t dial things back for their performance of the M83-produced track on Ellen, despite the smaller stage. It was a more intimate setting, but the bevy of backup singers came along, as did Brandon Flowers’ lightning bolt…

The Killers Perform “Shot At The Night” On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’: Watch

The Killers stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform their Direct Hits lead single “Shot At The Night” Tuesday (November 12). The shimmery M83-produced track evokes the band’s synthy Nu Romantic early days, so we thought we’d get to see Brandon Flowers sidle up to that trusty sparkly keyboard once more, but that wasn’t the case. Instead,…

The Killers Have Some Choice Words For American Pop Music: It’s “Retarded”

While Lorde’s inarguably excellent, critically hailed single “Royals” sits comfortably atop the Hot 100 for the fifth week in a row, pop-rock quartet The Killers are none too pleased with the condition of American Top 40 music — and luckily, there’s a hideously outmoded slur that can be used to describe it!

In an interview with The

The Killers’ 2006 Hit “When You Were Young” Remixed By Calvin Harris: Hear A Long Clip

The Killers’ “Shot At The Night”: Hear The New M83-Produced Track

That long-awaited collaboration between The Killers and M83 is finally here. It’s an interesting marriage, since “Shot At The Night” finds synth-pop mastermind Anthony Gonzalez working with the band after they’ve pretty much abandoned their synthy New Wave roots for anthemic rock grandeur. But hey, we’ll take it!

The result basically sounds like…

The Killers Announce ‘Direct Hits’ Collection & New Single “Shot At The Night”

Has it seriously been 10 whole years since The Killers dropped their still-absolutely-amazing debut album Hot Fuss? Not exactly — that LP was released in June 2004.

The Killers Worked With M83’s Anthony Gonzalez On New Song

Great news for anyone (like, say, me) who misses the Hot Fuss days when The Killers were New Wavers and frontman Brandon Flowers was rocking guyliner and a bad British accent: the Vegas band has enlisted M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez for a new track. Speaking to Radio.com, guitarist Dave Keuning said the band recored one song…
