    Are we really due another announcement already? Feels like we've only just had one.

    Don't worry my friends. Westlife isn't happening. The best case scenario of The Killers is still on the cards.

    Yeah, so since 2007, they've put out two albums, one which a lot of fans don't seem to care about (trying to be objective here, I don't like TKOL at all but that's besides the point), and another album which is good but it's rarely thrown in with OK Computer, Kid A, or In Rainbows. So I don't think it's unfair to say they're past their prime. It's really not a dig at them; I think Radiohead are great. I think that's totally unfair to reduce them to half of Hot Fuss. When You Were Young is their best performing song in the charts, in fact the first 3 singles off Sam's Town all did well. It's hardly "scattered"; they were a big deal for more than 5 minutes in 2004. They were absolutely huge from 2004 for half a decade. Ehhhh this isn't even worth debating as it's pure speculation. You have no idea if any of that is true. They could easily have been signed up when they agreed to do the secret set.

    My brother loves The Killers as well and went to Rock Werchter last year and said they weren't very good. Sounds like an off night, where some idiot who had no idea how to play drums asked to play drums and then obviously fucked it up and threw it all off a bit. Think Brandon ended up acting like a bit of a diva cos he was pissed off lol. They have someone from the crowd play drums on For Reasons Unknown at pretty much every gig these days and it's usually a cool moment for whoever has actually learned how to play the song, and it goes down really well. I have seen them 5 times on the current tour and they were brilliant every time. And it does frustrate me a little bit how samey and obvious the setlists tend to be, but they have so many set staples because they have so many really popular songs that a LOT of casual music fans want to hear, and that will/would (I don't wanna get ahead of myself) suit a Glastonbury headline slot perfectly. It's a shame that I don't get to hear the likes of On Top or Losing Touch, which are better than yr Mr Brightsides, but The Killers are still as big as they are because Brandon Flowers is such a crowd pleaser. A lot of people on here absolutely cannot take personal opinion out of the equation when deciding who is/isn't a headliner. You can't claim that this is a weak booking after you had no issue with Radiohead being booked, who are undeniably inferior in terms of the number of well known songs, and the crowd they would pull, and also equally if not more past their prime. (That isn't to say the Radiohead set wasn't great, it was, 2nd best all weekend behind that secret set in the JP tent.) There's clearly gonna be someone else sick on at the same time anyway so who even cares. UTSK

    New album cycle is a bit of a grey area depending on where they're up to in June. But I reckon this should count lol. I have been laughed at by so many people on here for insisting The Killers are clearly still in contention as headliners hahahaha.

    Not getting my hopes up as I don't think Michael Angelakos can face touring abroad due to his health, but would love it if this made its way to the UK.

    Five is a bit White Lies by numbers, but they have their sound absolutely nailed down as far as I'm concerned and I really like it. They tweeted a while ago about Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden and you can clearly hear its influence in some of these tracks. Although actually with some tunes, I've tried my best with Spirit Of Eden but don't understand the acclaim personally. Buzzing for Thursday night now.

    Not letting me embed it for some reason, but the new Cage The Elephant song Ready To Let Go is on Spotify. Nothing mindblowing but it sounds aight on first listen. The melody in the chorus reminds me a little bit of All I Ever Wanted by Basshunter ffs.

    New Cage The Elephant album, Social Cues, out on April 19. Hope their success in the States is reflected a bit more over here on this cycle. Fucking great band and one of the best live acts about, defo one for the Glasto wishlist.
