The Killers - The Killers Desperate To Perform Live

The Killers are ''desperate'' to perform live.

The 'Mr. Brightside' hitmakers are currently working on the follow-up to 2008's 'Day and Age' - which has the working title of 'Battle Born' - and can't wait to show off their new songs.

Drummer Ronnie Vanucci Jr. said: ''These songs are so good I'm just desperate to play some shows. I'd play the opening of a 7-eleven at this point.''

Frontman Brandon Flowers also admitted that taking four years out of the group to focus on solo projects has been a ''risk'' but he hopes they can continue with their previous successes.

He told Q magazine: ''I'm sure taking too much time off is a danger. It's a bit strange to spend time learning to hone your skills and figure out what makes you unique as a band then take half a decade off.

''We just hope that lightening strikes again.''

The singer also revealed the album will be ''heavier'' than previous efforts but will still be recognisable as The Killers.

He said: ''It's still eclectic, I've not thrown the keyboards away.

''But it's definitely heavier.''
