The Killers have teamed up with blockbuster film director Tim Burton for their creeptastic new music video for Here With Me, the third single from their 2012 disc Battle Born. Filmed in Blackpool, the band plays in the background while a young man, played by Craig Roberts, stalks an actress.
Burton enlisted the help of his Edward Scissorhands lead actress Winona Ryder for the video, who plays the object of Roberts wide-eyed character’s fascination. Part Scissorhands, part Mary Jane’s Last Dance, the video ends with a shocking feature the two characters share, which isn’t quite explained. But I don’t question things from the man who made Batman Returns.
With a beautiful love ballad as the backdrop to an endearingly troubled romance, check out The Killers in Here With Me from their album Battle Born.
Brandon Flowers believes he is the most “rock ‘n’ roll” person anyone could meet. The Killers frontman, who is a devout Mormon and the father-of-three, gave up alcohol and cigarettes five years ago and doesn’t take drugs. Flowers says that he thinks the way he lives his life exactly as he wants adheres to the principles of rock and roll.
Flowers explains “I want to be myself. I live my life how I want to. Isn’t that the idea of what rock ‘n’ roll is? I am more rock ‘n’ roll than just about anybody else that you’re going to meet.”
Despite his own sober stance, Brandon insists he doesn’t get upset if the rest of the band enjoy alcoholic drinks around him, saying “No [I'm not judgemental]. You’ve got to choose what you’re going to do. That’s one of the gifts that I believe we’re given on this Earth. I’m not looking down on anybody for that.”
The Killers have released a new video for Miss Atomic Bomb, a track from their latest album Battle Born. In the clip, we get a rare glimpse backstage and on tour with the guys as they hit the road and perform in front of thousands of adoring fans.

Last week I told you Twilight fans about listening to previews of the New Moon Soundtrack? Well I’m about to one up that, you can now listen to the full soundtrack (except for 4 tracks which are 30 seconds) right here!
A lot of movies in the past have been accompanied with a subpar soundtrack however this isn’t the case for Twilight’s New Moon, due out in theatres November 20. The likes of Death Cab For Cutie, Muse, The Killers & Radiohead’s Thom Yorke have all contributed to a soundtrack that is definitely going to be a hit, just like the movie will be.
New Moon director Chris Weitz made it no surprise that he wanted the soundtrack to be great and they delivered. Anything that involves Thom Yorke, The Killers or Muse will turn out great. Although those three songs are only 30 second clips, you can already hear how great the tracks are.
Overall the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack is a good compilation of tracks that are easy to listen to and a great way to get into bands that you have never heard of. This soundtrack is perfect for anyone who likes music, even if you’re not a fan of Twilight (yes those people do exist) this soundtrack is something you should not overlook. Give it a listen and open your music sense to realm of new music. Enjoy!
