Watch: The Killers Mini-Documentary Directed By Werner Herzog

Written by Brayden Darke on September 20, 2012

The Killers have released a new mini-documentary, oddly enough, directed by German film director, producer, screenwriter, actor, and opera director Werner Herzog. The 7-minute clip, made for American Express, sees the camera follow the band around their hometown of Las Vegas, while they point out landmarks and tell their story.

The band released their new album Battle Born last week, which is the long-anticipated follow-up album to previous classic Day & Age. This album marks the group’s fourth effort all up since the release of their first album Hot Fuss in 2004. For this one, the band enlisted the help of some of the industry’s greatest studio meddlers, including U2‘s Steve Lillywhite, Rage Against the Machine collaborator Brendan O’Brien and Madonna producer Stuart Price,

The Killers will be visiting Australia on the back of the Big day Out 2013 lineup in January, with sideshows announced earlier this week as well. The band were last on our shores a few years back promoting their third album Day & Age as headliners of two now-defunct festivals – the V-Festival (2009) and Good Vibrations (2010).
