In the trailer that announces Rebel Diamondsthe leader of the band, Brandon Flowerssays: “Look, it has been said that what is remembered lives, and we have accumulated stadiums full of memories over the last twenty years, enough to fill lives. “Twenty songs for twenty years: Rebel Diamonds”.

Also, last August, Flowers revealed that stopped production of what was going to be a new album by the band halfway through the process: “Halfway through recording I realized: ‘I can’t do this’”Flowers explained to The Times. “I don’t think you’ll see us making this kind of music anymore.”he declared.

And I continue adding: “This is the crisis I’m in. The Killers are my identity and our songs fill the seats, but I feel more satisfied making music like Pressure Machine.”.
