They are a great band.
The Killers definitely brings back fond memories for me: their first album, "Hot Fuss" came out when I was finishing up college and we all listened to them. To me, they were really pioneers in the new wave (pun intended!) of new bands bringing back the 80's/New Wave sound in I guess what's considered the "post-punk revival" that we are in today. Today, almost everyone sounds like The Killers. I guess that's a compliment!
Another band I dig that also came around the time with The Killers is The Bravery...both bands featuring that strong electronic element that is obviously a callback to the music they grew up on in the 80's.
I followed The Killers for a few more albums but eventually stopped keeping an eye on them. I should take a look at their latest album...I hear good things. Glad they're still around and no doubt they'll be around for a good while.
