The Killers vs. The Bravery

The following is verbatim from the Killers discussion list found at Apparently, there is some sort of feud between The Killers and The Bravery. Did The Bravery really steal The Killers' sound, is Brandon Flowers overly egotistical or is everything just a mere publicity stunt? You be the judge:

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has finally given the reason behind his hatred of The Bravery - he is jealous of them. The singer has been involved in a long-running spat with the New York electro rockers, originally slamming them for copying his style. But he now admits he simply becomes angry when he hears his rivals are doing well. He says, "I've never actually said anything bad about anyone who didn't deserve it, but occasionally it's brought on by jealousy. When I hear a good song it really does p*ss me off."

Whomever posted this claimed they lifted the story from KDGE, but when I went there I wasn't quite sure where to look, so I haven't seen the story for myself. Who knows if it is true?
