The Killers at EJEKT Festival 2017!
The EJEKT Festival 2017 hosts another of the greatest names in contemporary music: THE KILLERS for the first time in Greece on 24 June!
After Kasabian and The Jesus and Mary Chain that have already been announced for Day 2 (July 14th), the top Killers is the new, huge name that will be appearing this summer on the Waterloo scene on Day 1 of the EJEKT Festival 2017 (June 24).
From the very first time that they appeared in 2004 with the multi-platinum “Hot Fuss”, the Killers swept everything in their tracks and established themselves as one of America’s most important bands and the planet. Brandon Flowers’ distinctive voice and addictive melodies on songs such as “Mr.Brightside”, “Somebody Told Me,” “Smile Like You Mean It”, “Jenny Was a Friend of Mine” and “All These Things That I” V Done “immediately went into the pantheon of the decade of decade. But that was only the beginning!
“Sam’s Town” followed in 2006 by Flood (New Order, U2, Nine Inch Nails, etc.) and Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Editors, etc.) with songs like “When You Were Young” And “Read My Mind,” also became platinum and established them definitively as a real arena act, that is, a band that can fill stages with both its popularity and its ability on the stage. At a time when this term has almost disappeared, because the new bands do not even manage to get close to the huge names of the past, Killers not only did it, but they are now permanent headliners at the top festivals on the planet (Glastonbury, Coachella, etc ), While their solo concerts sold out their tickets on huge stadiums, culminating in the Wembley Arena in London in 2013.
The success was continued with the 2008 “Day & Age”, produced by the famous Stuart Price (Madonna, Kylie, Pet Shop Boys, etc.), with “Human” and “Spaceman” singling out. The world tour to promote the album has been so successful and exhaustive that the band decides to take a three-year break in which their personal work has been released.
In 2012 they returned to the “Battle Born” discography, where they experimented with five leading producers (Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Stuart Price, Daniel Lanois, Brendan O’Brien). From the album were songs like “Runaways”, “Here With Me” and “Miss Atomic Bomb”.
In total, in their career they have sold over 22,000,000 albums worldwide and is one of the most successful 21st century bands in all kinds of music. They have won many awards (Brit Awards, NME Awards, MTV Europe Awards, American Music Awards, etc.) and have won 7 Grammy Awards.
In 2017 they will return to the record label, with their 5th record of their career. They have already announced that it will be released in the summer and will be produced by Jacknife Lee, producer of U2, REM, Kasabian, Snow Patrol and many other big names. The name of Jacknife Lee and the reported disposal of Killers to be out of the sound Of “Battle Born” predisposes us for a really big return! The first single from Killers’ new sound is expected in the spring.
The countdown has already begun until June 24, when Brandon Flowers and the rest of the Killers will first enter the EJEKT Festival, at Nero Square in Faliro, the most beautiful concert venue in summer Athens right next to the sea for To present their great successes and their new material to an evening that will surely be written in Greece’s concert history.
