According to reports, Brandon Flowers and co's headline set on the Pyramid Stage hit 106 decibels, becoming the loudest in history.

The Killers played a triumphant set at Glastonbury Festival last month, and now it appears it was also historical.Brandon Flowers and co - who first headlined the Pyramid Stage in 2007 - proved themselves to be one of the most enduring indie bands of the noughties by playing a career spanning set, complete with covers and special guests.

As reported by NME, Martin Audio - the team behind the speakers at the festival's main stage, said the band's set hit 106 decibels for fans at the front of the stage.

Despite that ear-splitting record-breaking volume, the outlet adds that that technological improvements and real-time ear monitoring meant the band didn't break the off-site sound restriction of 65 decibels.
