Brandon Flowers from The Killers first became political when the band released their single ‘Land Of Free’ in 2019. In a recent interview with NME, he endorsed Joe Biden for the upcoming election. However, he’s not too sure that the Democratic candidate will win.
From his NME cover story interview:
He describes modern America as “ugly and polarising”, and says that he has his “fingers crossed for Joe Biden” in November’s US elections. Yet his optimism is undermined by the fact that Donald Trump remains “unfathomably popular”. He admits that he exorcised much of his political angst in ‘Land Of Free’ before he reached ‘Imploding The Mirage’, but what’s to say his ire won’t spill onto the next Killers record?
The band just put out their brilliant new album Imploding The Mirage, and they are already prepping a brand new album. They expect it will come out sometime next year. Flowers promises it won’t be a ‘quarantine album.’
“You know when someone makes a record and they say that they have 50 songs and they’re going to release another record? Well, we really are!” Flowers said. “We’re going to release another one in about 10 months. We’ve already gone back into the studio with Rado and Shawn. I’m excited. It might be better than this one.”
It’s an exciting time to stan The Killers!
