Brandon Flowers' shaving songs

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers shaved off his beard because his facial hair didn't suit the band's latest album 'Day and Age'

Brandon Flowers shaves because facial hair doesn't match his music.

The Killers singer, who sported a moustache while promoting the band's second album 'Sam's Town', realised he needed to change his image for current LP 'Day and Age'.

He explained: "Our style goes with the music. Those songs fit the clothes. I loved my beard and my facial hair but I remember realising one day when we were making this record that the person who sings it doesn't have a moustache."

Despite paying careful attention to his wardrobe, the 'Mr. Brightside' star admits he is still surprised at the scrutiny his clothes attract.

He added to Britain's Elle magazine: "We don't realise the commotion what we wear is going to cause. It's a ritual to get ready for a show and I look forward to it. Dressing to go on stage is like putting on a mask. It doesn't even cross my mind that it would be such a big deal that there are feathers on my shoulders.

"We are still getting used to the fact people are going to pay attention to our look."
