The Killers gave the track its live debut at Mad Cool.

The Killers have told fans to mark August 5th in their diaries for a first listen of the band’s new single Boy.

Brandon Flowers has always strived for prolificacy from his group, and this latest single will continue a busy period for them after last year Pressure Machine arrived as their second summer album in a row following 2020’s Imploding the Mirage.

“These are the people of Sam’s Town, not the faded showgirls and card sharps on the tumbleweed strip, but their sons, daughters and wives who pick up the pieces when things inevitably go wrong,” our Pressure Machine review reads.

“Pressure Machine features snippets of conversation with them between its songs, giving the stories an authenticity and grit that Flowers’ bombast, however sincere, has in the past often flown over at 30,000 feet.”

“There’s a grainy, almost documentary-esque feel as a result. To the band’s credit as an outfit who’ve made a reputation on flogging high concepts to the masses, it’s a brave artistic pivot, supposedly with Springsteen’s unvarnished, lo-fi classic Nebraska as a template.”
