The Killers have revealed the video to their Christmas single 'I Feel It In My Bones'. Scroll down to watch it.

The promo sees the band again team up with their former tour manager Ryan Pardley, who previously appeared in the band's 2007 Christmas video for 'Don't Shoot Me Santa'. Pardley plays the role of a 'bad Santa' who rides a motorbike in place of Father Christmas' more traditional sleigh.

The track is the band's seventh consecutive Christmas single 'I Feel It In My Bones', set to be released on December 1 to coincide with World Aids Day.

The track, which will raise money for the (RED) campaign which helps fight HIV/ Aids in Africa and was revealed over the weekend, is a festive reworking of a demo from early writing sessions taken from recent LP 'Battle Born'. Speaking to NME about the single, drummer Ronnie Vannucci described the festive offering as "a bit more of a rock song" than their previous seasonal output.

"It was an idea we had and a demo we recorded when we working on 'Battle Born' and it was so good... See what we do is we tend to make all these songs and then put them in a locker and find them way too late," he said. "This song was basically started a while back and we just finished it and changed it into more of a Christmas song. It was mixed by Alan Moulder, he did it when we were over in the UK a couple of weeks ago."

I Feel It In My Bones', is available exclusively via iTunes from Tuesday, December 4.
