The Killers score a special honor that has alluded them

The Killers have scored their first number 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart this week with their new release ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ which sold 111,000 copies. The album was released on September 22nd, and got boosted sales with it being bundled with ticket sales to the band’s upcoming tour. It’s surprising in retrospect to look back and see that this is there first number 1 album.  Brandon Flowers and company came close to this prestigious status before with ‘Sam’s Town’ in 2006 which came in at number 2. The tease of the top spot alluded the Killers again in 2012 with ‘Battleborn’ coming in at Number 3.  The Nevada based band has been on the national level since their debut smash ‘Hot Fuss’ and sustained a spot at the top of the alternative music mountain ever since.

‘Wonderful Wonderful’ has been well-received by fans, with two roaring jams ‘The Man’ and ‘Run For Cover’ garnering tons of views on YouTube. The first time I heard ‘the Man’ I was immedately strutting around like I was the guy in the song. Oh, come on you don’t do that when no one is looking?

It’s refreshing to see one of alt bands at the top of the charts, rubbing elbows with pop artists like Ed Sheeran.
