    As part of Polyvinyl’s 4-track Singles Series, every month during the year, a different artist will record a new song via a Tascam four-track recorder, and subscribers get it on 7″ vinyl. The latest participant is the former Pedro The Lion frontman David Bazan, who did something unexpected. He recorded a grizzled, lo-fi synthpop take […]

    ’80s revivalism has been the trend in pop music for a few years now, and it’s about time that someone capitalized on that by getting all of those old producers and artists who haven’t touched a relevant song in three decades to come back and work their magic on some classics from other decades. In […]

    Elton John revealed that he will be working with the Killers on their forthcoming album in a recent promotional video for Shazam.

    The Killers were one of the headliners — alongside Shamir and famous local Wayne Newton — at the opening night of Las Vegas’ new T-Mobile Arena, which opened for business for the first time yesterday. They brought along a couple of Vegas-y guests, including the Blue Man Group, who played drums during “Human,” and Newton, […]

    When the Killers first came out more than a decade ago, they came off like a streamlined, radio-friendly take on Interpol. And even though the two bands have moved off in divergent directions, it’s cool to see that the Killers still hold Interpol in something like reverence. The Killers are headlining Cincinnati’s Bunbury Festival this […]

    Governors Ball usually has a solid and reliable lineup. Another way to say that is that it sometimes leans predictable, booking lineups that are built on a lot of the names you’ll see populating other American festivals in the same summer. There will always be a moderate amount of genre diversity, but it definitely skews […]

    The Killers’ sophomore album Sam’s Town came out 10 years ago this October, and today the band has announced a vinyl reissue and a couple of special anniversary shows to celebrate the occasion.

    The Lake Tahoe Summit is a big annual affair, with lawmakers from around the country meeting to discuss environmental issues. This year’s just-wrapped edition featured President Obama discussing his own environmental legacy. It also featured a performance from the Killers, probably Nevada’s all-time greatest rock export. Harry Reid, the veteran and soon-to-retire Nevada senator, hosted […]

    The Killers’ sophomore LP Sam’s Town turns 10 years old on Monday — I know, I know — and to celebrate the occasion, the band are performing the album in its entirety at a pair of shows at Sam’s Town Hotel And Gambling Hall, the Las Vegas casino that lent the record its name. They […]

    The Killers’ Springsteen-addled sophomore album Sam’s Town just turned 10, and the band celebrated its big anniversary with a special show last week. They’ve also shared “Peace Of Mind,” a grand, sweeping ballad from the sessions that produced the album. Hearing a song like this for the first time in 2016 is a striking experience. […]

    The Killers wrote one of the songs on Robbie Williams’ upcoming album Heavy Entertainment Show. As Williams told The Sun in a recent interview, the track “Mixed Signals” was initially supposed to be a Killers track: “The Killers sound is unique and I think Brandon Flowers is one of the best songwriters on the planet. […]

    Every year for the past ten years, the Killers have put out a special Christmas single. They’re wrapping up that tradition this year with a cover of the Bing Crosby classic “I”ll Be Home For Christmas,” and they’ve collected all of their Christmas singles into a holiday compilation album called Don’t Waste Your Wishes. Listen […]

    Last night, Jimmy Kimmel aired his second-annual (RED) special, corralling a massive cast of celebrities to help out with AIDS awareness. And as part of the show, Kimmel led a big all-celebrity singalong of a bleakly funny song called “We’re Going To Hell” — the point, pretty much, being that celebrities need causes like AIDS […]

    Last year, 2 Chainz made a ton of money by selling a ridiculous Christmas sweater with a picture of Santa dabbing on it. So this year, a whole ton of artists have figured out that people want to pay them for Christmas-themed merch. Most of it is self-conscious and deeply ugly, and at least a […]

    If you aren't hanging out with Russian billionaires, you evidently aren't having all the fun that you could be having. Consider: Roman Abramovich, the Russian finance mogul and Chelsea Football Club owner, threw himself a New Years Eve party in St. Barts, and he got the Killers to perform. He also got Sir Paul McCartney…

    Last week, the Killers noticed that Panda Express has been using the phrase "smile like you mean it" on some of their fortune cookie fortunes, and sent a tweet directed at the Chinese fast-food chain saying, "I'm thinkin' orange chicken for life and we'll let you off the hook for using our stuff." Of course,…

    St. Vincent supposedly has a new album coming out later this year, and it looks like Annie Clark worked with Bleachers' Jack Antonoff on some of it. In a new New York Times profile on Antonoff, they mention that he's "working on new music by the cult singer and guitarist St. Vincent" in addition to…
