The Killers have announced a new album and North American tour.
The album is called Pressure Machine and it’s due out August 13th. The band co-produced Pressure Machine with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and the War On Drugs collaborator Shawn Everett, the same team who worked on last year’s Imploding The Mirage.
Brandon Flowers says that Pressure Machine is “a quieter, character-study-driven album” inspired by growing up in the small town of Nephi, Utah. He adds that that the album is “full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records.” There’s a trailer for the album now on YouTube.
The Killers plan to tour behind both Imploding the Mirage and Pressure Machine in 2022. They’ve announced a North American tour that starts August 19th, 2022 in Vancouver and wraps up October 8th, 2022 in Detroit. Tickets go on sale Friday.
