NME - The Killers bassist Mark Stoermer quits touring

Probably should have put a "for now" in there, but still an interesting development. Sounds like he's still on board for the next album though.

:/ I prefer when bands stuck together the whole way, but I suppose you can't stop someone from going after what they truly want.

I feel bad for Brandon Flowers.
He got stuck with some band mates who wont commit and don't seem to care. They've shot themselves in the foot and have become irrelevant. Used to be one of my favorite bands. This is just sad.

Perhaps their refusal to consider the application for biggest band in the world after Day & Age is a preservation of their image.

I don't really understand what people want from this band. What is disappointing about their career? They've been incredibly prolific, constantly headline festivals, released four albums and a b-sides collection. what more do you want?

Like Bob sort of alluded to, Brandon has said in some interviews that he's a bit more gung-ho about recording/touring/aiming for higher things with the band than some other members were (hence the solo releases he put out each time The Killers went on a significant break). That and the fact that Battle Born is their only post-2008 release and it's somewhat lukewarm reception, both creatively and from a publicity standpoint.

The Killers - Battle Born

New song "Peace of Mind" with Sam's Town 10 anniversary. I love it.

Hopefully a new album is due out soon.

They should have been indicted after recording and then releasing Human.

You may have sold me Radiohead tickets mate but you've just gone down an awful lot in my book.

As the anti-spam online forms say, are you human, or are you dancer.

Human is a great song.
