Anybody else here a fan of the Killers?

I was really into them back around 2012 but burned out on them for awhile. At about 4am Saturday while sick with a stomach virus I suddenly got a weird craving for their Battle Born album, with a particular urge to listen to "Be Still." It came out of nowhere. Up until that point I had forgotten about that song for over two years. It's been a weird craving and I've listened to the album over a dozen times in just a few days, but at least it's good music.

Well I didn't expect to find this on the video games board, but yeah they're one of my most favorite bands. I saw them in 2012 or 2013 and it was one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. Sam's Town >>>

I posted this from a mobile browser. Didn't notice the "Video Gaming & Consoles" header at the top. My mistake. Doesn't matter now though; someone apparently reported it.

I have those same cravings for the Killers and even Brandon Flower's solo album sometimes. (Now listening to Be Still, thanks for the reminder, one of the best songs off of Battle Born imo). The Killers actually brought my best friend and me together in 2013. I lived in California and she lived in Oregon, but I ended up going to Oregon for college, so we didn't previously know each other or live in the same area. She was one of my friends' roommates, and while she seemed cool, we didn't initially hit it off as buddies or anything. About two days after meeting her, I was in my friends and her room when she mentioned how much she loved the Killers. Upon hearing that, I immediately reached for my wallet where I keep the piece of lightning bolt confetti I picked up from their concert I attended in 2012. Then, she pulled out HER wallet and HER piece of confetti and we kind of looked at each other and instantly became best friends. A state apart and not even knowing the other existed, yet we kept our little mementos from what we thought was one of the best concerts of our lifetimes close to us in the same way.

Anyway, sorry for the long story! Do you have any hope for another album in the future? I've read a couple interviews and Brandon Flowers is giving mixed signals, no yes or no, really.

I felt that way too! Especially because I wasn't sitting too close to the stage so the confetti didn't really reach my section. After the show ended I had to run down to grab a couple, then I ran right out of the venue to avoid the weird glances haha

The only Killers' song I'm familiar with is "Mr. Brightside." I'd sing it with my best friend on SingStar a few times, and I loved it. I also heard it when I was in Santa Clara, California at Levi's stadium during a hockey game with my family; a different band was playing it, but it was still nice.
