Missing part of The Killers’ ‘murder trilogy’ appears online

Hear 'Leave The Bourbon On The Shelf' now

A rare song by The Killers, ‘Leave The Bourbon On The Shelf’, has appeared online as a live video recording. You can hear the song now by clicking on the video below.

The band played the track live, for what is believed to be the first time since they signed a record deal, on their recent US tour.

The song has so far not been released, but is due to appear on the band’s forthcoming B-sides and rarities compilation, ‘Sawdust’, which is released in November.


The track is the first song in what the band have described as a “murder trilogy”.

Played together with ‘Midnight Show’ and ‘Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine’ – two tracks from the band’s debut ‘Hot Fuss’ – the three songs tell the fictional story of a woman being murdered by her jealous boyfriend.

Jaunty and bass-driven, the track features a typically dramatic vocal performance from frontman Brandon Flowers.
