Default Killers guitarist Dave Keuning releases new single Boat accident

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.des...amp/2150148002

This would go perfect with the new white lies single ďbelieve itĒ that just came out few months ago. Iíll take any killers sounding stuff I can get at this point.

CW why do you shoehorn White Lies into every single thread of yours?

Even if they were a good band (they aren't), it's weird.

This hoodie is so insanely popular you have to wait months to get it

Hayley Peterson Dec. 5, 2013, 11:06 AM
American Giant
American Giant
The insane popularity of a single sweatshirt has forced its maker to expand into four new factories within the last year just to meet the soaring demand.
The zip-up hoodie, made by San Francisco startup American Giant, costs $89. It had been on the market for 10 months when a December 2012 Slate article declared it "the greatest hoodie ever made" and suddenly sales exploded.
The pace of growth was so rapid that back-order waits grew to as long as four months. But people continued placing orders regardless of the wait.
At the time, American Giant had only one factory in Brisbane, California. The company has since expanded into a factory in Los Angeles and three more in rural North Carolina, just outside Raleigh.
"We've been chasing demand the entire year," American Giant CEO Bayard Winthrop said in an interview with Business Insider. "In September, we were finally back in stock — and then the rate of buying went up by four times."
With its expansion into new factories, the company has begun selling T-shirts, sweatpants, and a women's line. In the meantime, demand for the sweatshirts hasn't slowed. The hoodie is currently sold out of most sizes and colors.
"We are absolutely throttled down on manufacturing," Winthrop said. "We are maxing out all of our capacity at all of our factories. As much as they can give us, we are taking."
So what's so great about this hoodie, anyway?
For starters, it appears to weigh more than two pounds. The fabric, which is 100% cotton, feels about three times thicker than most sweatshirts. And ribbed paneling along the shoulders and sides help create a tailored look, eliminating the boxy silhouette of most hoodies. Bayard said he spent about eight months designing it with the help of former Apple engineer Philipe Manoux and world-renowned pattern designer Steve Mootoo.
Customers appear to love the quality and fit, calling it "shockingly well made" and "absolutely fantastic" in dozens of reviews on American Giant's website (american-giant.com).
"This sweatshirt is seriously worth the wait, and awesome for the price, too. I'm considering ordering more to stock up for the rest of my life, but I'm not sure this one is ever going to wear out," one reviewer wrote.
Another said: "The hype around this hoodie seems absurd. But once you try it on, the quality really does take you by surprise. It's unlike any hoodie — or any other piece of clothing — I've ever owned. A must-have."
An equal — if not even bigger — draw to American Giant's apparel over the fit and quality is that it's all made in the US.
The company advertises that it's "bringing back American manufacturing" and pledges to never outsource jobs overseas. It can afford the higher labor costs in the US because it is a direct-to-consumer business and therefore avoids expensive overhead associated with brick-and-mortar stores.
To keep costs down, Winthrop said he doesn't plan to open any pop-up shops, like many e-retailers have done. He also hasn't made any investments in major marketing campaigns. He said the sweatshirts have all been selling by word-of-mouth. The company offers $15 for referrals to help that process.
"One of the great unspoken, dirty secrets about the apparel industry is that brands for the last 40 years have been investing a tiny amount in the product to sustain huge marketing and huge distribution costs," Winthrop said. "In American Giant's case, we do almost the exact opposite of that."
Looking ahead, Winthrop said he plans on sticking to the basics: T-shirts, jackets, hoodies, and sweatpants.
"When we think about next year, just being in stock — not expanding the product mix — but just being in stock will be a huge lever up for us," he said.
Here's a promotional video about how the sweatshirt is made:

I saw w.l. Twice in 2011 and 2014. Amazing live show. Only better show I’ve seen was Interpol.
McVeigh never stopped being a good singer like flowers did. This Keuning song makes me think he should be singing for the killers now.

I saw Deftones 10 years ago so I have seen old bands from mid 90s but I never liked hootie. I’m more into 80s nostalgia now which is why I enjoy killers and white lies

I know they don’t bring anything new to the table cus they are essentially a nostalgia act but Harry McVeigh is by far one of the best singers I’ve ever come across period. His voice and singing is Just unmatched by anyone.

The killers are a glorified cover band too but at least McVeigh doesn’t seem to have much ego and think his band is the second coming. And just accepts they are nostalgia act.

What did flowers say about Sam’s town? Something along the lines of “it’s the album that’s going to save rock . Best album of last 20 years.”

I feel like at one point you admitted to liking them ... or that you liked them at one point but are too "cool" now. Or something.

Anyway, Hot Fuss and Sam's Town are full of jams. Zero fucks distributed.

CW, do you follow Billy on Instagram

Last night in his stories he said he loved touring with Catherine Wheel and that they were a great band, and I thought of you, but I didn't think of you hard enough to screenshot it

Let's talk about the Killers in general.

Hot Fuss & Sam's Town are obv classix. I feel like Day and Age was a noble effort to combine the sound of their first two records, but it fell flat for me (except for the singles). Battle Born is, perhaps surprisingly, a pretty solid record, all told, and they should have just broken up after it because they took five years to shit out Wonderful and it is trash.

I also feel like they are good at knowing what belongs on their albums and what doesn't - because their b-sides/outtakes are mostly forgettable, though I do like a few (Get Trashed, Michael Valentine, Four Winds, Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town, & Romeo and Juliet).

Oh, also, their Christmas chunes are fun, too. "Happy Birthday, Guadalupe" is one of my favorite modern xmas songs.

I was just visiting family in Las Vegas (Killers hometown) at the end of November. I'm usually content spending time in non-touristy neighborhoods outside Downtown and the strip (especially the damn strip). One night someone wanted to go Downtown and I went to do my own thing which included not gambling with my cousins and Dad. I was smoking on Fremont when all of the sudden The Killers came on over this huge sound system which included a crazy lazer light show on the barrel vault canopy above Fremont that stretches 5 blocks. Got to admit I was never a huge fan but for the length of a couple songs I found some sort of peace within the debauchery of Fremont Street.
