The Killers Aim For Greatness On Third Album
August 12, 2008


The Killers

The Killers plan to release their third studio album this November and singer Brandon Flowers says that he wrote about 30 new songs for the record. "Everything is at stake on this album," Flowers tells Rolling Stone. "Everything. I live through these songs. People make such a big deal about the second album: ĎDo or die.í But I feel like the pressure to produce something great will always be there. Itís our job, after all."

The album was produced by Stuart Price, who has most notably worked with Madonna. According to Rolling Stone, the band is considering Day And Age as the title for the new album. "This record is stripped down in a lot of ways," addss bassist Mark Stoermer. "Each instrument has its place, and things arenít clouding anything up. Weíre not trying to be bombastic. Itís our most poppy record but also our most experimental."

The Killers recently unveiled two new songs live, "Spaceman" and "Neon Tiger," while playing a handful of gigs in late July. Other new tunes slated for the record include the tentatively titled "Vibration" (described by Stoermer as "a fun dance track") and the seven minute "Goodnight, Travel Well."

The band took some critical hits for their second record, Sam's Town (partly due to Flowers hyping up the album in the press before its release), but the singer says he can handle it. "We learned that you canít please everyone," Flowers told Rolling Stone. "But weíve got faith in what we do, faith in our fans and faith in the soon-to-be-converted."

The Killers will play a handful of European festival dates in the second half of August.
