These Killers officially formed in 2012 and prides itself as being LA's first and only "The Killers" tribute band. The band consists of members from other successful Los Angeles based tribute bands such as These Handsome Devils (Morrissey/Smiths Tribute) and SR80 (Spanish Rock/80s Tribute). Driven by the lush new wave sound of "Hot Fuss", the anthemic soul-splitting songs from "Sam's Town", the polished stadium sized tracks from "Day & Age", and finally, the nostalgic rock-and-roll greatness of "Battle Born", These Killers are poised to fill the void until your favorite band returns to town.
In June 2007, on the heels of The Killers' Sam's Town Tour, These Killers front man, Julian (vocalist/keys/bass), ran into Brandon before sound check at the summer stage right outside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. After some playful banter with Brandon, Julian made reference to a possible Killers tribute band, to which Brandon laughed and replied, “Make sure it’s a good one!!”
