Few bands in the early 2000s rose so quickly to the forefront of pop music as the Killers. With a mix of '80s-styled synth pop and fashionista charm, the band's street-smart debut, Hot Fuss, became one of 2004's biggest releases, spawning four singles and catapulting the group -- particularly their dandyish, 22-year-old frontman, Brandon Flowers.
The Killers have returned to the music scene after a five-year break.
The Killers released their fifth studio album, "Wonderful Wonderful," on Sept. 22. The title of the album sets the bar pretty high before the first song even begins.
The Las Vegas natives’ latest release has been quite a success according to the charts. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. It became the band’s first number one album in the United States, and in the United Kingdom, The Killers became the first international group of artists to have their first five studio albums at number one.
Hailing from Las Vegas, they rose to fame with the release of their debut album, Hot Fuss in 2004. The line-up of the band is Brandon Flowers on lead vocals and keyboards, Ronnie Vannucci Jr. on drums, Mark Stoermer on bass and vocals and Dave Keuning on guitar and vocals.
The Early Years: Brandon Flowers and Keuning met after Flowers responded to an advert that Keuning had placed in The Sun newspaper, looking for new band members. They later recruited Stoermer and Vannucci Jr.
The Killers' first few gigs were in clubs in Las Vegas and they soon caught the eye of a British representative for Warner Brothers. He took their demo back to England and they later signed to British independent label, Lizard King.
The Breakthrough: In 2004, Lizard King released The Killers' debut album Hot Fuss. Since its release, the album has been certified four times platinum. The album spawned the hit singles 'Mr Brightside' and 'All These Things That I've Done'. Their biggest chart success at that time, however, came with the re-release of 'Somebody Told Me.'
In 2004, the band appeared in an episode of The O.C. The next year, when they played at the Live 8 concert in London, Robbie Williams unexpectedly included their lyric "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier" into his one of his own songs, as did U2 and Coldplay.
