Restrained, Character-Study-Driven Seventh Studio Album Inspired by Frontman Brandon Flowers' Youth in the Small Town of Nephi, Utah!

The Killers' seventh studio album, Pressure Machine is about the small town of Nephi, Utah where frontman Brandon Flowers spent his youth. The songs are extremely personal and cover a spectrum of emotions in connection to growing up in a rural setting. The album was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Jonathan Rado (Foxygen), all of whom worked together on 2020's Imploding The MirageWhen the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the promotional run and worldwide tour for Imploding the Mirage, "everything came to this grinding halt," says Flowers. "And it was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence. And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records." 

For the first time since 2004, the relentless momentum and pressures of being in a globally-renowned, stadium-shaking band stopped. Enter Pressure Machine: a view into the everyday realities of a small American town with a stark, tough beauty, and The Killers' most restrained and resonant album yet. A quieter, character-study-driven album, Pressure Machine lives squarely in Flowers' hometown of Nephi, Utah, a close-knit community of 5300 people with no traffic lights, a rubber plant, wheat fields, and the West Hills. Nephi is the place Flowers spent his formative years (10-16), saying "had it not been for advancements in the automotive industry, Nephi in the 90s could have been the 1950s." The album's songs are based on the memories and stories of people that impacted him growing up, interspersed with commentary from current Nephi locals about their town.
