Brandon Flowers’ Solo Debut Video “Crossfire”

The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers decided to be productive during the band’s hiatus and make some solo tunes. Personally, I can’t tell the difference between his solo stuff and the band’s stuff, even evidenced in his solo debut music video, Crossfire. Nevertheless, I like it. Check out the ninja-filled video featuring CHARLIZE THERON (that’s no typo) and mark your calendars, the debut album Flamingo drops September 14th in the States.

WATCH: The Killers Reunite to Bless America!

Vegas rockers The Killers took a break from their hiatus and rocked the White House on the 4th of July. Lead singer Brandon Flowers said “it was the least we could do to thank the troops who constantly fight for our freedoms.” Check out the six-part patriotic performance below (forgive the quality — it’s only from the White House’s official website).

Part 1: “Human”

Part 2: “Somebody Told Me”

Part 3: “Mr. Brightside”

Part 4: “A Dustland Fairytale”

Part 5: “God Bless America/Read My Mind”

Part 6: “When You Were Young”
