The Killers Share New Song 'Boy' Just in Time For Their Rescheduled Tour: Listen

The Killers debuted a new song during their set at Spain's Mad Cool Festival last month, and now the band has officially released the song.  "Boy" is another arena sized track mixing rock and  new wave synths. 

 

 "This was the first song written after we had to cancel the Imploding The Mirage tour due to the pandemic," lead singer Brandon Flowers says. "I had recently moved back to Utah and started to make trips to Nephi, where I grew up. I found that the place I had wanted to get away from so desperately at 16 was now a place that I couldn’t stop returning to. I have a son approaching the age I was at that time in my life. With 'boy,' I want to reach out and tell myself - and my sons - to not overthink it. And to look for the “white arrows” in their lives. For me now, white arrows are my wife, children, my songs and the stage."

Joe Walsh's sixth annual VetsAid concert -  raising money for veterans’ services charities - will take place November 13 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH - with a stacked lineup - 

 

This year’s VetsAid is a celebration of Ohio rock, with the Cleveland-based James Gang (joined by Warren, OH naive Dave Grohl), Dayton’s the Breeders, Cleveland’s Nine Inch Nails, and Akron’s the Black Keys.  

In a statement - Walsh said

 “It all started in Ohio.  Picking up my first guitar as a kid in Columbus set me on a musical journey to Kent State, Cleveland and then the world. It is a great privilege for me to share the stage once again with my original James Gang buddies and this incredible group of Ohio rock legends like Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys, The Breeders and Dave Grohl. I believe in Ohio and look forward to celebrating our musical legacy while honoring our veterans with VetsAid 2022.”
