And the band say the fresh tunes have "more of a classic feel"...

The Killers have revealed plans to unveil new material for their forthcoming shows in the UK.

The band have completed three songs so far including ‘I Won’t Let You Down, ‘Daddy’s Eyes’ and ‘It’s Only Natural’.

“We’re trying to strip it down a little bit. Not have it be so busy. Just let it breathe and let it be a great song. We wrote some great songs on the first one, but these have more of a classic feel,” singer Brandon Flowers told

The Killers are due to play the sold-out ShockWaves NME Awards tour in the New Year along with two London dates on February 19 – a matinee and evening show at Brixton Academy.

The band will demo new material with U2 producer Flood and Swervedriver producer Alan Moulder once they complete their dates in Japan.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci added: “That time will be used to get some ideas on tape and tie up the loose ends of the songs that have been written on the road.”
