The Killers Visit Kimmel, Tour With M83

The last time the Killers did Kimmel they explained their band name (“to relax before a show we like to kill someone“). This time they kept it to the music and the feathered jackets with a shot at “Human.” The Hunter S. Thompson-referencing track — yes it is “are we human or are we dancer” — sounds better live, but you already knew that. (Sorry Stuart Price.) It’s a good single, from a good singles band.

Day & Age is out today via Island. The Killers are taking M83 out on the road with them(!). For fans of synths and the ’80s:
