The Killers will release their seventh studio album, called Pressure Machine, on August 13th. The album was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), all of whom worked together on The Killers’ last album, Imploding The Mirage, which was released last year.
Frontman Brandon Flowers said that “everything came to this grinding halt” during the pandemic, including their tour. He added, “It was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence. And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records.”
According to a release, Pressure Machine‘s stories detail the real life personal battles, overwhelming regrets, local tragedies, and the opioid epidemic that hit Flowers’ hometown of Nephi, Utah, as well as every hometown in America.
