The Killers are the Las Vegas-based four-piece who formed in 2003, featuring the talents of singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers, drummer Ronnie Vanucci, guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer. They take their name from the logo of the bass drum belonging to a fictional band in New Order's music video for the song 'Crystal'.
One of the biggest rock bands of the 21st century, with worldwide sales in excess of 22 million, the band has also received multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Award nominations, MTV Video Music Awards and NME Awards.
From their early unforgettable hits including 'Mr Brightside' and 'Somedbody Told Me' to later anthems like 'When You Were Young' and 'Human' through to their annual charity Christmas singles, the band have constantly evolved with their hugely successful brand of pop indie-rock.

One of the pioneers of '90s Brit pop, Liam Gallagher rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both previous bands.
His erratic behaviour, distinctive singing style, and abrasive attitude have been the subject of commentary in the press; he remains one of the most recognisable figures in modern British music.
Liam Gallagher tour dates
Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.
Travis Scott tour dates
The Irish Indie-electro-pop three-piece formed in 2007, when founding members Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday met at Bangor Grammar school and subsequently teamed up with Kevin Baird. Characterised by the band's short, sharp songs with punky overtones and indie sensibilities, the County Down boys achieved a UK no.1 album in 2012 with their 2nd release 'Beacon' on French independent label Kitsuné. Their success led them to signing with Parlophone for their 2016 3rd album 'Gameshow'.
Two Door Cinema Club tour dates
Virgin/EMI signings Bastille deliver bewitching electro-pop. Fronted by Dan Smith, the band got their name due to the fact Dan's birthday falls on Bastille Day. He also wanted something neutral yet evocative enough to describe his rhythmically and melodically inventive pop music. Since their inception in 2010, the band steadily built up an ever-growing audience, resulting in their debut album 'Bad Blood' reaching the no.1 position in the UK album charts. It went on to be the biggest selling debut album of 2013 and one of the top 10 biggest selling albums of that year. Their second album Wild Worlds followed in 2016.
Bastille tour dates
London-based four-piece The Vaccines firmly believe that less is more, with songs like 'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' clocking in at under two minutes! Their fast and furious brand of giddy rock 'n' roll could almost be the sound of the Libertines and Ramones falling down the stairs at 100MPH.
The band released their debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines in 2011, the follow up, Come Of Age, in 2012 (which reached number one in the UK album charts) with the highly anticipated 3rd release English Graffiti following in 2015.
"On record the Vaccines wallow in the echo-drenched wooziness made famous by the Jesus And Mary Chain, but live they reach back further through pop's past glories, stirring the shimmering girl group drama conjured by Phil Spector and scuzzed up by the Ramones." -The Guardian.
The Vaccines tour dates
One of the most exciting new guitar bands to burst through in the UK, Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in North Wales. Their debut album, The Balcony, reached number 10 in the UK Albums Chart and they won their first Brit Award for British Breakthrough act in February 2016.
The band are going from strength to strength, and show no signs of slowing following the release of the second album, The Ride, in May 2016.
Catfish and the Bottlemen tour dates
North London's Wolf Alice take their name from a book by Angela Carter. Originally a solo project for frontwoman Ellie Roswell, it soon expanded into a full four-piece band with Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals).
Eloquently described by Clash Magazine as ‘the lovechild of folk and grunge’, Wolf Alice's off-kilter sound has seen folky vocals combine with the alt-rock of 90's bands like Hole and Elastica.
Wolf Alice tour dates
This Manchester outfit blend falsetto vocals with synths, guitars and discordant pop hooks. Quirky singles like 'Photoshop Handsome' have seen comparisons to XTC, Wild Beasts and Django Django, but the band also have a sound all of their own.
Their 2011 debut release 'Man Alive' was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and they have received three nominations for an Ivor Novello award. After an initial level of cult success, they broke through with second album 'Arc' which reached no.5 on the UK album charts and 2015's 'Get To Heaven' reaching no.7.
Everything Everything tour dates
A right bag of kooky weirdness. The work of New England's Merrill Garbus, it's all jarring guitars, African yodelling and clanking great drums. It sounds like it should be a horrible mess but her tribal post punk is actually terribly compelling.
tune-yards tour dates
London rockers formed in Southend-on-Sea, Nothing But Thieves are inspired by artists as diverse as Ray Charles and Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire and Jeff Buckley. Yet although the band readily acknowledge their debt to the late singer-songwriter, they have developed their craft to the point where their sound and style is very much their own. Their two albums to date both hit the UK top 10, with 2017's 'Broken Machine' just missing the top spot by reaching no.2.
Nothing But Thieves tour dates
Funk / Punk / Indie / Soul five-piece from South London. Bursting at the seams with punk energy, with the patter of the Streets, the spittle of Mark E. Smith, and the underground spirit of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, combined with the frenzy, rage and exasperation of their youth. Their reputation as one of the best new live bands in London is cemented following tours with The Garden and Fat White Family and shows with The Fall, King Gizzard, Slaves and more.
