It looks like The Killers are back in the studio recording new music after the release of their 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful. It was a five year wait for that album but it looks like we won’t be kept waiting that long again as the band shared a photo on their twitter page of a studio set up.
The band had already hinted towards new music when Ronni Vannucci who is the bands’ drummer spoke to NME. “We’re already thinking about bringing our recording rigs with us and we’ve been messing around backstage with ideas. It’s in our minds and I think we want to get to it right away. I don’t want to take anymore time and I think we’re ready.”
He also said he was hoping to get more experimental with their music;
“I’m constantly messing around with things and I see a lot online with people who are working with experimental sounds – with either electronic synthesisers and things like that or even a straight-out jazz record, there’s a lot of great stuff going on underneath our feet and maybe the pop world will finally catch up to it 20 or 30 years later. I’d like to sort of tap into it a little bit.
“I don’t want to totally lose anybody but there’s still a lot to be discovered and I think keeping with the tradition of always trying something new with a record might be something for us to look into.”
However it is still uncertain as to whether bassist Mark Stoermer and guitarist Dave Keuning would join the band in the studio after they took a hiatus from touring with The Killers.
“I haven’t had too much of a conversation with them about it,” Ronnie told NME. “I’m of the thinking in that if they are ready and willing, then let’s do this. In the end, if they’re not then you know, I’ll reluctantly keep on and do it without them. I don’t mean to sound fiery but I’m on a wave right now and I don’t want to get off it.”
Flowers added, “We haven’t really gotten into that territory yet, I mean me and Ronnie are getting along, and there’s not really a lot of contact with the other two.”
We can’t wait to see what the band put out their next, let’s hope it is in 2019!
