Brandon Flowers - A Fire Still Burning
The Killers frontman, Brandon Flowers is about the biggest rock star in the world today, and with that comes great responsibility. Having four consecutive albums (Solo & The Killers) reach #1 in the UK charts, and touring with the likes of U2, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Pet Shop Boys. As a rock band you would have to rank The Killers right up there with modern day fellow rockers Radiohead, U2, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, and The Strokes as rock bands with the most diehard fans. Elton John has also took a liking to Flowers by listing him as one of his top-five heroes.
With all that fame as a modern day rock star, Flowers is about as normal a guy that you can think of. Take a look over at Mormon.org and see for yourself. Flowers recently took part in the "I'm A Morman" video campaign. The guy is married with three kids and you can tell that is what he puts first in his life. Also check out the video 'A Fire Still Burning' below which features him talking about his career, his family and his faith.
Rumours are floating that The Killers are set to release their 4th studio album Battle Born (working title) in early 2012. Brandon has said to have recorded six songs for the new album, one of which is called 'The Slot Tech' and has described as a 'seven and a half minute epic'. The band also performed a new song that could possibly make an appearance on the album, called 'The Rising Tide'. Brandon has also claimed that while writing his solo album, he wrote a song titled 'Runaways' that is intended for the Killers new album.
