The Killers Share Epic U.K. Tour Footage in ‘Miss Atomic Bomb’ Video
Beaucoup shots of Ronnie Vannucci Jr.'s slo-mo head bang
In SPIN’s review of the Killers’ new one Battle Born, Barry Walters explains that, “Many critics can’t accept a bridge that unites the seemingly incompatible kingdoms of Morrissey and Bruce Springsteen, and therefore an incredulous, bullying tone follows the Killers everywhere.” One place the tenacious Las Vegas band is safe, however, is the road. In the new video for “Miss Atomic Bomb,” the band shares tour footage that captures both the intimate moments (eating ice cream, riding in the bus) and the epic ones (performing for a swaying ocean of human beings) from their recent time abroad. It’s a good look for the broadly unfurling song, whose lyrics wrestle with nostalgia for pure love.
