The Killers shared they are already planning their next album, which will hopefully reunite all four members of the band and have a heavier sound.
The Killers Are Not Wasting Any Time
The rockstars just released their seventh record, Pressure Machine on August 13; but they shared they’re not wasting any time. They’ve already started working on “orphan songs” that they hope will form the basis of another album.
Frontman Brandon Flowers said, “We’re figuring out our next album. It’s a little bit more canyon rock, maybe a little bit more traditional Killers, I guess.”
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. said he’s expecting the end result to be “a bit heavier and more clench-fisted” than Pressure Machine. “We were messing around on the stage for a virtual show the other month. It felt like there was this rock n’ roll thing happening. I could see us going in that direction: something a bit more energized.”
Their Next Album Will Hopefully Reunite All Four Members
The band’s next album could even see bassist Mark Stoermer make a full comeback after his role was cut short on Pressure Machine, which also features the return of guitarist Dave Keuning.
Ronnie said, “I’m just supposing here, but I think the whole COVID thing made people realize how good they have it. There have been some really kind remarks that I’ve never heard from the guys before that made saying, ‘Hey, I don’t want to not be on a record anymore – so let’s do this.”
He added, “We’re very sobered up from the experience of being locked away. I do think that all four of us are going to be on this next record. We’ve already started messing around a bit, so that’s good.”
Before they release their eighth album, The Killers are planning on a world tour which has previously been rescheduled twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tour will encompass both Pressure Machine and their 2020 album, Imploding The Mirage.
