The Killers have premiered the video for “Quiet Town,” a track off the band’s just-released new album, Pressure Machine.
The animated clip reflects the story of the song, in which frontman Brandon Flowers details the tragedies that have befallen his hometown, while also expressing love for where he came from. You can watch it now streaming on YouTube.
Pressure Machine, which is out today, arrives less than a year after the last Killers record, Imploding the Mirage, dropped in August 2020. With their touring plans canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Flowers and company decided to return to the studio to knock out another album.
“It was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence,” Flowers explains. “And out of that silence [Pressure Machine] began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records.”
Pressure Machine also includes a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers titled “Runaway Horses.”
