• Frontman Brandon Flowers addresses this by saying, “At the end of [previous album] Battle Born we did a month in Asia without Mark so we sort of got a little bit of the feeling of what it would be like. And then we had to do the same thing without Dave for a little while," he laughs aware that it sounds as though the band is falling apart, but stresses that's not the case. “It's not unsettling for me as you might think. My job is to sing. I'm trying to look at the things that are more familiar rather than dwell on the things that are not familiar.”
• So what's next? “The plan is for it to be a sixth Killers record, but damn, I love my last solo record! We only toured it for a few months and then…” In 2015, Brandon cancelled a string of shows to care for his wife, Tana, who was suffering from PTSD stemming from childhood trauma. “No, the plan is for it to be another Killers record and we have to figure out how to make it work [for Stoermer and Keuning]. Mark is all over this new record — some of his best bass lines and progressions are on this record and he brings a darkness to our music that doesn't really exist without it.”
• So, there you have it. #TK6 is the plan, but realistically, #BF3 is going to happen. More behind the cut.
