OFFICIALLY RELEASED VOCALS REVIEWS
Selection of reviews of/online confusion over Stu Kopycat Killers' copycat vocal on EDM 'cover/remix' of Killers track ('blessed by the Killers') released by a huge (over 2 billion worldwide streams) producer. Sources include industry websites, whole youtube disucussion videos and reddit threads on the subject.
"Those vocals sound pretty close to Brandon Flowers don't they?.....it's unclear as to whether this is even a cover or a remix.......discussions on reddit seem to debate what's going on to.....if it really is a cover, the vocal imitation is the best (thing) going for it" -
"Outstanding vocals" -
"No, it's the exact same (original Brandon Flowers) vocal....it just sounds a bit different without the guitars and drums.......they must have got permission to use the sample" - Reddit discussion thread.
LIVE SHOW REVIEWS
11/10. I thought you’d be good, but you were absolutely brilliant. Really phenomenal. Easily one of the best, if not the best, tribute band I have ever seen - hence my wanting to re-book you for 2021 on the spot!”
Jamie Truelove - Festival Director - Revival Festival Blackpool
“What a band. They blew Tribfest 2018 apart! As the festival director for Tribfest I try and get around the site and watch a few songs from each band to get a feel for them. However, on this occasion I was drawn into the Kopycat Killers from their very first song. The whole band had so much energy and the likeness in voice and style to the original band is incredible…a totally magnificent performance, a truly remarkable performance”
Ed Faulkner - Festival Director of TRIBFEST - The World Biggest Tribute Festival. August 2018 (KK were rebooked in 2019 and again to headline the whole festival in 2020).

"As Promoter at DF Concerts I’ve seen The Killers live many times including when I got to see the real deal close up when we had them play a secret midnight show in King Tut’s after TRNSMT 2018. I then booked the Kopycat Killers to play King Tut’s on the 15th Anniversary of Hot Fuss and I have to say, having seen them - they were absolutely amazing. I will be immediately re-booking The Kopycat Killers next time I need a Killers tribute act."

L.Hayes - Organiser of Corporate Event for Company with over £800m annual turnover, Autumn 2019.
"I'm in Los Angeles and I'm a co producer on a tribute band-oriented show (yeah, I know; it's gonna be while... ).
I watch a LOT of tribute acts both live, back when I could, and in videos like these.
First, if forced to choose this minute, based on actual years of 'research' (watching tribute bands), I would name the Kopykat Killers the best of the best.
Second, since the pandemic began, I have been upset because I'm a normal human being, but I haven't cried. It turns out this video was the straw that broke the camel's back. It made me cry out loud. Not because I love the Killers so much... I do love them, but come on... but because of the audience. The tribal group experience of a crowd of fans celebrating the music they love by bouncing and singing at the top of their lungs is someplace I've been regularly pretty much my whole life. That joy, that energy, is priceless and beautiful and, for the foreseeable future, gone.
That the KK can produce that as well as their subject is high art, that we can't get together and do this, is tragedy. Sigh".
Steve Ochs - Youtube Comment - August 25th 2020
What is the toughest task for ANY tribute band? To win over the HARDCORE fans! Killers 'Superfans' are called 'The Victims'. 'The Kopycat Killers' played at their Convention in Lincoln, UK in April 2019. Between them these 200 'Victims' had seen 'The Killers' over 3000 times, and travelled to the UK for the gig from 14 countries worldwide - the toughest possible crowd for a Killers Tribute band.
