The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone, and fans on the band’s Reddit summarized what he said about the state of The Killers.
AJ6658 posted, “Wow what a candid interview. Alludes to stuff and semi-confirms things but felt quite honest. Few takeaways – Confirmation of a concept album. Not sure how I feel about that to be honest. I thought ITM was brilliant with the atmosphere, lyrics and sound. MSOW was the last song written but one of the best so felt that they had such a great groove going into the next. Ill keep an open mind but would of loved a continuation of ITM
Clear that the a major falling out between him and BF which has been alluded to in the past.
BF and RV reached out to him
Clear divisions still as he doesn’t know whether Mark will tour.
TK8 chat haha.”
Alecs_47 responded, “Isn’t Mark situation a little bit more complicated since he has tinnitus? I think the band said he would do few shows for the ITM tour but I can imagine Mark not wanting to risk his health (but these are suppositions)
Aj6658 wrote, “Yeah hes got a tinnitus problem from a pyrotechnic going wrong (think Glasto) and his back problem. But its more the fact DK doesnt know. Dont know how it wouldnt of been brought up in normal conversation with the band.
Also this is clearly what DK said about fans reading too much haha.”
Alecs_47 concluded, “I would guess that Mark has the door open and it’s just a limbo of “Will he do it or he won’t?” , so it would be a personal decision that Dave doesn’t know of, if I had to take a guess I would say that Dave is more close to Mark right now than Brandon or Ronnie (just assumptions though) or maybe he just won’t say it publicly.
I semi-agree with you on the Brandon-Dave point but I think (and hope) that everyone is just on a better place right now than they were on 2017; but yeah we are reading too much, let’s just be happy with his return.”
