The Killers launch new album, ‘Quiet City’ music video
The Killers are again with new music.
The rock band launched its seventh studio album, Stress Machine, and a music video for the tune “Quiet City” on Friday.
The “Quiet City” video is an animated video that takes place in Nephi, Utah, the small Southwestern city the place The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers lived from ages 10 to 16.
Stress Machine options 10 different songs, together with “Runaway Horses” that includes Phoebe Bridgers.
Flowers beforehand mentioned Stress Machine emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic after “all the things got here to this grinding halt.”
“And it was the primary time in a very long time for me that I used to be confronted with silence. And out of that silence that document started to bloom, filled with songs that will have in any other case been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers information,” Flowers mentioned.
Stress Machine was impressed by Nephi.
“We had been discussing [Brandon] shifting to Nephi as a child and being caught in the midst of nowhere,” drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr., mentioned. “And through COVID-19, it began to really feel like we had been in the midst of nowhere.”
“I found this grief that I hadn’t handled,” Flowers added. “Many recollections of my time in Nephi are tender. However the ones tied to worry or nice disappointment had been emotionally charged. I’ve acquired extra understanding now than once we began the band, and hopefully I used to be capable of do justice to those tales and these lives on this little city that I grew up in.”
The Killers will promote Stress Machine with a brand new North American tour that begins Aug. 19 in Vancouver, B.C.
