The Killers Announce New Album ‘Pressure Machine’

The Killers

The Killers have announced the release date of their seventh studio album, Pressure Machine, on Island Records on August 13, 2021. The album was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), all of whom worked together on The Killers’ critically-acclaimed album Imploding The Mirage, released last year. Click here to pre-order Pressure Machine.

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down the promotional run and worldwide tour for The Killers’ 2020 album Imploding the Mirage, “everything came to this grinding halt,” says frontman Brandon Flowers. “And 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.”  

For the first time since 2004, the relentless momentum and pressures of being in a globally-renowned, stadium-shaking band stopped which allowed them to create Pressure Machine: a view into the everyday realities of a small American town with stark, tough beauty, and The Killers’ most restrained and resonant album yet.

The album’s songs are based on the memories and stories of people that impacted him growing up, interspersed with commentary from current Nephi, Utah locals about their town. “We were discussing [Brandon] moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere,” says the band’s drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. “And during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere.”  Concurs Flowers, “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” he says, “many memories of my time in Nephi are tender. But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged. I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in.”

The Killers will be heading back to the road in 2022. Tickets for these shows go on sale on Friday, July 23, at 10 a.m. local time via the band’s website.
