In a recent interview with NME, the Killers spoke on their fondness for several bands, including, a choice which may come as a surprise to many-the Spice Girls:
"The Opening Ceremony was the craziest thing I've ever seen," said drummer Ronnie Vannucci. "It impressed me a lot. I love the Spice Girls. I thought the Muse thing was cool. The Queen thing was cool."
Frontman Brandon Flowers added words on the evolution of their forthcoming release, Battle Born:
"On this record we've taken what we've acquired from playing all these shows on the road. That experience and that fire I guess from playing so many live shows, and we've applied that to songwriting. I don't think we've ever done that before."
Battle Born, featuring the lead single "Runaways," is due September 17.
