In a completely unexpected announcement, The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers, announced the end of the band due to creative differences.
“We are sad but it’s something that should happen. The Killers cannot continue simply because we all have very different ideas and a new album cannot be done this way…It is the end of an era for all of us and we are very pleased with all the fans that have accompanied us during the last decade.” – Brandon Flowers
“We started asking ourselves, ‘what next?’. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure. - Ronnie Vannucci
The Killers are one of the bands that are speculated to be part of Lollapalooza this summer. Still no news on whether this will affect their presentation at the festival, but this week the official lineup will be announced. The rest of their tour dates will still go on.
The band released four studio albums during their career including ‘Hot Fuss‘ (2004), ‘Sam’s Town‘ (2006), ‘Day & Age’ (2008) and ‘Battle Born‘ (2012). They also released one compilation album, ‘Sawdust‘(2007) and one live album titled ‘Live from the Royal Albert Hall‘ (2009). To date, the band has sold over 6 million albums in the United States, over 5 million albums in the United Kingdom, and a total of 17 million worldwide.
By the way, you don’t have to worry at all. The Killers are not splitting up. Happy April fools day!
