The Killers returned to the live stage in Asheville, North Carolina last night, performing three new songs from their forthcoming album 'Battle Born'.
The band played tracks titled 'Flesh and Bones', 'Miss Atomic Bomb' and 'Rising Tide' at the Orange Peel venue, with high quality footage of all three emerging on YouTube this afternoon.
Musically speaking, the tracks follow suit with the recently previewed 'Runaways'. Let's say Bruce Springsteen would be advised to check his pockets to make sure Brandon Flowers and co. didn't take his wallet as well.
Everything sounds suitably epic though, getting us more than a little excited for 'Battle Born' and The Killers' headline slot at V Festival next month.
Check out live versions of 'Flesh and Bones', 'Miss Atomic Bomb' and 'Rising Tide' below, now.
Flesh + Bones
Miss Atomic Bomb
New album 'Battle Born' follows later in the year and will be the Las Vegas band's fourth album, their first since 'Day & Night' in 2008.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the album title, lead singer Brandon Flowers said: "In a sense, all Americans are battle born. Our ancestors came here for something better." Drummer Ronnie Vanucci added: "It's living up to its title. This is our difficult fourth record."
Song titles confirmed for the album, due out before the end of 2012, include: 'Heart Of A Girl', 'Flesh And Bone', 'Carry Me Home' and 'Runaways'.
The Killers headline this year's V Festival alongside The Stone Roses, appearing in Stafford and Chelmsford on August 18-19. Tickets for V Festival are on sale now. For more information, visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
