SoundExchange, the premier music tech organization powering the future of music, announced today that The Killers have been honored with the SoundExchange Hall of Fame Award, recognizing the band’s stature as one of the most streamed acts in the organization’s 21-year history. 

“The Killers and SoundExchange have a parallel history, starting out in the early 2000s and taking the music industry by storm,” said Michael Huppe, President and CEO of SoundExchange. “The band’s debut album, Hot Fuss, made us all fans as it established their deep catalog of enduring hits like ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’ that sound as fresh today as they did 20 years ago. We are honored to present The Killers with the SoundExchange Hall of Fame Award.”

Frontman Brandon Flowers and bassist Ronnie Vannucci Jr. received the SoundExchange Hall of Fame award before hitting the stage at the 11th annual Boston Calling music festival where group performed a headlining set to close out the three-day event. The Killers, who released their second greatest hits collection, Rebel Diamonds, in December 2023, are on tour in Europe through mid-July. The band returns to the U.S. for festival appearances at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands before kicking off an August Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Additional North American festival dates are on tap through September, followed by a Mexican tour in October.
