Another 'Hot Fuss' over The Killers
Everyone is making a "Hot Fuss" over The Killers these days. That's because June 7th marked the 10-year anniversary of the album's release – an all-conquering debut for the band by any standard.
Of course a ten-year anniversary will often be cause for reminiscing, and the Internet celebrated the milestone with articles, photo galleries, and columns to rank the tracks of the classic album from top to bottom (In case you're curious, Vanyaland's No. 1 song was "Smile Like You Mean It," while the 'worst' track went to "Andy, You're a Star," which was called 'herky, jerky and awkward').
All the fuss comes at the same time The Killers are working to promote their greatest hits compilation, "Direct Hits," also marking their decade together as a band. That album dropped November 11, 2013 in a number of different editions, including an "Uber Deluxe" version which featured a picture book of the band's history. Two singles were spawned from the release – "Shot At the Night" and "Just Another Girl."
Following the band's wildly successful 2013 Battle Born world tour, in which they performed in 50 countries and headlined stages on six different continents, the road warriors continue their trek in 2014. Their calendar is packed for the summer and includes dates at both North American and U.K. music festivals.
The Killers recently headlined the Hangout Festival on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. They braved heat, humidity, high winds and sandstorms to play for the fans. And naturally… they killed it.
The Killers show what all the 'Fuss' is about (Created July 26, 2013)
What's all this "Hot Fuss" about the Killers? These guys have been making a name for themselves since they formed in Las Vegas in 2001. And all the commotion surrounding the band? It's only gotten louder since their debut album nearly a decade ago.
The band -- comprised of lead vocalist and keyboardist Brandon Flowers, guitarist Dave Keuning, bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. – are known for hit songs like "Mr. Brightside," "When We Were Young, "Somebody to Hold Me" and "All the Things That I Have Done."
Named after a fictional band in a video, The Killers' debut album (the aforementioned "Hot Fuss") skyrocketed the band to international fame in 2004. Since then, they've released four albums that have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, earned them seven Grammy awards and a variety of other industry accolades.
Road warriors all, Flowers and the guys toured for two straight years after the release of "Hot Fuss," playing more than 400 shows and repeatedly headlining some of Europe's biggest festivals. They've also played sold out shows in places like Madison Square Garden, and on June 22, 2013 performed at the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium in London in what was their biggest show to date.
The Killers are still living the rock 'n' roll lifestyle in 2013, with dates now booked well into the fall. Those are mostly North American dates, but also include stops in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan and the United Arab Emirates from late September and into October.
