Las Vegas quartet The Killers are my favorite band and while Josh rolls his eyes every time I say this, I think they have released some genius works.
Last night, July 29th, they played a special show for their fan club, The Victims, at the Highline Ballroom in New York. Now as you can imagine, this Popwrecker was especially jealous since she was stuck in the Midwest and forced to miss out on this extra special show.
Not only was this show special because of the exclusivity, but because it was the fans’ first opportunity to hear a taste of the new music the band has been working on. Tenative reports are that The Killers will release the follow up to Sam’s Town this November. Stuart Price, the man also know as Jacques Lu Cont and responsible for the brilliant “Mr. Brightside (Thin White Duke Remix),” is producing.
Although, I couldn’t be at the show, thanks to the wonders of YouTube, I was able to check out two new songs that the band tested out. I personally loved the story told in “Spaceman.”
