The Killers reveal new album will be 'definitely heavier.'
The Killers have revealed their upcoming album will be ‘definitely heavier’ in a new interview about its recording.
The Las Vegas quartet, who are currently working on the follow-up to 2008’s 'Day and Age,' told Q Magazine that fans should expect a sound more in keeping with debut 'Hot Fuss' when it’s released in the Autumn.
Frontman Brandon Flowers said: “It’s still eclectic, I’ve not thrown the keyboards away. It’s definitely heavier.”
The 30-year-old, who was one of three members to pursue a solo career during their hiatus, also admitted that the band’s decision to take their time with the album, provisionally titled 'Battle Born,' could be a risky strategy:
“It is a bit strange to spend time learning to hone your skills and figure out what makes you unique as a band, then take half a decade off. We just hope that lightning strikes again.”
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci, who described the new LP, as a ‘new wave Traveling Wilburys,’ went onto claim how he’s itching to get back on the road again:
“These songs are so good, I’m just desperate to play some shows. I’d play the opening of a 7-Eleven at this point.”
The band also revealed the working titles of several songs, including ‘Miss Atomic Bomb,’ ‘The Rising Tide,’ ‘Flesh and Bone,’ ‘Runaways’ and ‘Carry Me Home.’
