The Killers work on material with M83

The Killers are apparently working on new material with M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez.  While details are slim, Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci confirmed the collaboration in an interview with NME, noting that the sessions have gone past the demo stage and into “real recordings.”
“I mean, you never know what it’s gonna be, I guess,” he offered, adding, “But we have our engineer, and we’re working with a couple of surprise guests, in the producer capacity. Some of it is sounding really cool. We can be guilty of making things so ornate, and sometimes that’s a bad thing. So I always have conversations with [vocalist Brandon Flowers] about working from a smaller palate, simplifying things. If these new tracks develop a theme, a common thread, then that could be the start of something.”
It’s unclear what the Killers’ plans are with the material, and Gonzalez has yet to make a comment on the collaboration. The band are currently touring the world in support of Battle Born, and you can see their show schedule here.
