The Killers are already preparing their next album – Music News

The Killers are already “discovering” their next studio album.

The ‘M. The Brightside hitmakers released their seventh album, ‘Pressure Machine’, on Friday (13.08.21), but said they were wasting no time as they had already started working on ‘orphan songs’ which they hope will ‘they will form the basis of another album.

Frontman Brandon Flowers said:[We’re] to understand [our next album]. It’s a bit more canyon rock, maybe a bit more traditional killer I guess.

And drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. said he expected the end result to be “a bit heavier and tighter” than “Pressure Machine”.

He explained, “We were messing around on stage for a virtual show the other month and it felt like there was this rock n’ roll thing going on. I could see us going in this direction: something a little more energetic.

The band’s next album may even see bassist Mark Stoermer make a full return after his role was cut short on “Pressure Machine,” which also features the return of guitarist Dave Keuning.

Ronnie said: “I’m just guessing here but I think the whole COVID thing has made people realize how good they have it. There were some really nice remarks that I had never heard from the guys before that said, “Hey, I don’t want to be on a record anymore – so let’s do this”.

“We are very sobered by the experience of being locked up. I think all four of us are going to be on this next record. We’ve already started messing around a bit, so that’s good.

Ahead of releasing their eighth album, The Killers are planning a world tour which has already been postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tour will include both “Pressure Machine” and their 2020 album, “Imploding the Mirage”, which they were unable to perform in front of a live audience due to the health crisis.

Ronnie told NME magazine: “I always knew ‘Imploding the Mirage’ would last. It marinated in a nice way for me. I think it’s one of our best records. I’m probably more excited than ever to play these songs live.

Brandon added that he hopes “Imploding the Mirage” will be “remembered fondly” by fans as “something that was a balm” amid the pandemic.
