Here are some facts about The Killers that might have escaped your attention until now.

(1) Bass player Mark Stoermer, worked as a medical courier before joining the band. He delivered all sorts of biological material.

(2) Brandon Flowers has a pathological fear of the number 621. That’s his birthday: June 21. So why is he afraid of that number and date? It goes back to the time when he was a kid and messed around with a Ouija board. It told him that he would die on that date.

(3) Speaking of weird things, Brandon keeps his facial hair shaving in a bag. He started collecting it back in 2008. What’s he going to do with it? He has no idea.
