The Gaslight Anthem and James are set to support The Killers at their first ever standalone stadium show on June 22 at Wembley Stadium in London.

Speaking about the show, drummer Ronnie Vannucci previously told NME: "It sort of feels like the full-circle moment in a way. We started out here in the UK so to come back and play Wembley, I don't know what I can say about it. Every couple of months there's something along those lines that sort of blows me out of the water. Obviously, this is the cream of the crop of dreams coming true."

Vannucci has revealed that the band are already working on their fifth album, despite only releasing their last, 'Battle Born' in 2012.

He said: "I hope there's a new album soon. We've been working on stuff. We were in the studio just the week before last. I want to put out a new record now but it's about getting us all on the same page. I bring a guitar with me everywhere."

The Killers picked up the prize for Best International Band at the NME Awards earlier this year, with frontman Brandon Flowers thanking fans for voting, adding: "It's not easy to find a copy of NME in Las Vegas, we had to really seek it out so this means a lot."

The Killers will be playing a host of festivals this summer, including headline slots at the Isle Of Wight Festival, T In The Park, Spain's Benicassim and Lollapalooza in Chicago.
