What can we expect from The Killer's Pressure Machine album?

The release is described as a study of Flowers' 'hometown' of Nephi, Utah, a close-knit community of 5300 people with no traffic lights, a rubber plant, wheat fields, and the West Hills. 

Flowers, who spent his formative years (10-16) in the town, recalled: “Had it not been for advancements in the automotive industry, Nephi in the 90s could have been the 1950s.” 

The album’s songs are based on the memories and stories of people that impacted him growing up, interspersed with commentary from current Nephi locals about their town. 

"We were discussing [Brandon] moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere,” says the band’s drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr.

“And during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere,”  concurs Flowers. “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” he says, “many memories of my time in Nephi are tender.  But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged.  I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in."

The album also features a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers.
