All the band members' - including singer-keyboardist Flowers, guitarist Dave Keuning, bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. - were working odd jobs and playing in various local bands in Las Vegas when the line-up finalized in 2002; an early track, the jealous-lover lament "Mr. Brightside," helped the Killers land a deal with Island Records. The resulting debut, Hot Fuss, proved that the Killers were not only first-rate second-wavers, song like "On Top" and "Somebody Told Me" were awash in synths, but also that the increasingly ailing major-label environment could still nurture a multi-platinum rock band. Fuss sold three million copies in the United States, and yielded five singles. The band's fourth album, Battle Born, is now available.
