Brandon Flowers solo album, "Flamingo"

Hmmm... love the Killers but worry when lead singers start doing solo projects, as it often pulls the band apart, delays albums, etc.?

yeah saw this tweeted today.. Not so sure of this myself.. has me worried actually. I love the Killers.. Heard or saw something a while back that they are taking a break for a bit. Rumors were swirling around that there was some kind of rift going on..


he actually has a website: Brandon Flowers Music

Oh, for fuck's sake. Trainwreck of 2010. Likely entertaining trainwreck though.

Also, come on, guys. Do you really expect the Killers to release a new album every two years and tour constantly into old age? God forbid they take the time to dream it all up again. That's never worked.

Supposedly there's a clip from one of the new tracks floating around somewhere, and according to, well, one tweet, it sounds "good" and like "Alphaville."

t(-_-t). Seriously, I can see no reason why this won't at the very least be entertaining.

Agreed, except replace The Killers with The Killers & Bloc Party. These two bands have been working CONSTANTLY. All of a sudden they take a damn break and the fan base runs around like the proverbial headless chicken.

Hehee. They have definitely been working hard, and the results have been great. I wonder if the solo album takes the place of the rumored covers album? Which was supposed to contain a studio version of this awesome little track:

YouTube - The Killers - Girls just wanna have fun - Little Noise Sessions Union chapel

i had the chance to see The Killers perform live at a festival earlier in the year. they opened with Somebody Told Me, then started playing a bunch of crap songs that included Human, so i buggered off to Armand Van Helden instead.

sorry, carry on

Haha, I went for the first half of Armand van Helden, enjoyed it, and then dashed off to see the last half of the Killers set,who I adore, and was lucky to have them play all my favourite songs... Brightside, Read My Mind, Spaceman, This Is Your Life, When You Were Young

I might've passed you as we were heading our separate ways.

Flowers is a brill frontman, hope this solo offering is as good as Killers' stuff...

So it's got to be about +750 odds for this to not suck, right?

Too many hot women around that day for me to notice a bloke with his arm in a a sling.... and I'd been drinking crap Tiger beer and G and T's all arvo...

Armand was insane, got a really good possy, but really wanted to check out some Killers....

ohhhh man... tell me about it. wish i'd actually been with one though, and not just stared. Tiger beer was horse piss. so were the "Jagerbombs".

i was in Roots for most of the day. Kid Cudi, Naughty by Nature, Gym Class Heroes, BUSTA RHYMES, what a line up it was...
