(Radio.com) Those that only know Mark Stoermer as The Killers' bassist will likely be surprised upon hearing his latest solo effort, Dark Arts. The multi-instrumentalist's second solo album is thoughtful and sonically perfect with its sixties-induced psychedelia, bluesy swagger, lyrical poetry, and lush cinematic orchestration.

It's clear Stoermer wrote and recorded the album to please himself. As his own biggest critic, it's instantly apparent the musician and producer poured over every note. In May, The Killers announced that Stoermer would be taking a break from touring with the band "to pursue other educational goals and releasing a solo album." To make a perfect album, it can't play second fiddle.

With a big band-playing father and influences ranging from Public Enemy and N.W.A to Nirvana, The Beatles, The Who and Pink Floyd, Stoermer's new album coalesced into his own distinct sound.

With Dark Arts set for an August 5th release, Stoermer answered a few pressing questions. Check out the interview here.
