The Killers brought their new album to US television this week – watch them play ‘Blowback’ on Colbert below.
The track appears on the now-trio’s new album ‘Imploding The Mirage’, which came out yesterday (August 21).
‘Imploding The Mirage’ was delayed from its planned April release date due to the coronavirus pandemic, but has finally arrived.
Watch Brandon Flowers and co play ‘Blowback’ below.
In a five-star review of ‘Imploding The Mirage’, NME wrote: “In continuing ‘Wonderful Wonderful’’s atmospheric experimentation with canyon rock enormity, The Killers have made another dazzling statement of ultra-modern pomp, and one arguably even more in step with new generations of alt-rock.
“It’s a musical DeLorean: rooted in mainstream Americana but speeding into adventurous horizons.”
The band appeared on the cover of NME this week for a Big Read interview, where they discussed ‘Imploding The Mirage’, the band’s history and recent allegations of backstage sexual misconduct by crew on a 2009 tour.
“I know about what bad men can do to women. I would never turn a blind eye to that,” frontman Brandon Flowers told NME of the situation, which was subject to an internal investigation that found “no corroboration” of the allegations.
“I feel relieved that we were actually able to get to the bottom of it, actually find this woman and make sure that she was OK,” Flowers added. “The most important thing is that there was no assault. That’s just nothing but relief. From what we see backstage, the people we hire and the people in the band, we’ve never witnessed anything like that happen. If something like that did happen, we would want to know.”
