The Killers have a new record called Wonderful, Wonderful due out on September 22nd. We’ve already had a chance to hear “Run For Cover” and the first single “The Man” is currently pumping on your FM stereo.
Today the group shared the title track, “Wonderful, Wonderful.”
Yesterday, The Killers were in Noisey…and Larry Fitzmaurice asked them about the state of rock and roll.
Do you think a band like yours could gain similar traction in the present day?
Flowers: It could happen—but there hasn’t been anybody good enough. If there was a band like the Strokes, or Interpol, people would talk. [Points outside to Brooklyn] If there were some kids out there right now playing “Obstacle 1” tonight, I would hear about it, you would hear about it.
But there isn’t.
Vannucci, Jr.: People are very quick to blame a changing of the times for a lot of things, when it’s really that they’re just not good enough yet.
It’s a pretty good interview…they cover a lot of ground and talk about growing up with music in the 90s vs what it is like for their (our) kids now.
