For the second straight year, the Killers are releasing a new album. The development to 2020’s Imploding the Mirage is named Pressure Machine and is planned to show up on August 13 (by means of Island). Discover a trailer for the record, just as its Wes Johnson–shot cover.
Shawn Everett and Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado co-created Pressure Machine. As indicated by a public statement, the album is inspired by Brandon Flowers’ old neighborhood of Nephi, Utah. “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” the frontman remarked in a statement. “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.”
In addition to the Nephi motivation, Flowers noticed that Pressure Machine was a result of condition, as the band couldn’t visit because of the pandemic. “It was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence,” he said. “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.”
