The band want to get things done quickly...

The Killers have said they’d like to start recording their new album before the end of the year.

The band are currently on the road in North America in support of their debut album ’Hot Fuss’, which has sold two million copies in their native country.

Speaking to MTV news about the follow-up, singer Brandon Flowers said they already have more than an album’s worth of ideas.

“When you’re prolific you should put it out. In the ’60s and ’70s, it was sometimes three albums a year for people. That would be ideal for us, since we love to write and play new stuff, but that’s just not how it is anymore. So it’ll be a good year-and-a-half between records, but the sooner the better. We want to stick around and give people good things to listen to.”

While out in the US the band shot a new video for the track ’All These Things That I’ve Done’ with Anton Corbijn.

The Killers return to the UK for summer festival appearances.
