The band The Killers released in August last year the album Pressure Machine, with 11 new songs. The project had a strong publicity, which managed to bring the group closer to their fans thanks to the release of a mini-documentary that portrays part of the childhood of singer Brandon Flowers, in Nephi, Utah. Notes from A Quiet City) and directed by Robert Machoian, The Killers features a group visit to the city where Flowers lived from age 8 to 16, as well as testimonials from locals and famous band hits such as Cody, Terrible Thing and more.Watch:To the NME website, Brandon Flowers stated that the songs on the Pressure Machine album — the seventh released by the band — were made as the vocalist’s “memory chamber” with the city in which he lived:
“Mentally, I started going to this place where I grew up and writing songs about it. It was like there was a memory chamber somewhere waiting for me to unlock it. It was amazing. Once I finally opened that door, the songs that came out and the memories were vivid and emotional. It became pretty obvious to me what this album was going to be.”
Flowers lived in Nephi before moving to Las Vegas, where he formed The Killers. He, however, still visits the place in Utah to see his sister and show his children spaces of his childhood.The Killers_BrandonBrandon Flowers is the lead singer of The KillersInstagram/ReproductionThe KillersThe Killers achieved international success in the early 2000sAdvertising by partner Metrópoles 1The Killers With Wayne Newton Perform At Grand Opening Of T-Mobile ArenaGrupo não toca no Brasil desde 2018Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesThe Killers With Wayne Newton Perform At Grand Opening Of T-Mobile ArenaThe Killers will perform in Brazil on November 12Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesThe Killers With Wayne Newton Perform At Grand Opening Of T-Mobile ArenaThe next show will be on the eve of the Brazilian Formula 1 GPKevin Winter/Getty ImagesThe Killers With Wayne Newton Perform At Grand Opening Of T-Mobile ArenaTickets for the event start at R$170Kevin Winter/Getty Images0Top of BillboardWith 20 years of history, The Killers still remains at the top: the new single from the North-American band American, Boy, hit number one on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart, with just four weeks since its release.
