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.

This album marks the group’s fourth effort all up since the release of their first album Hot Fuss in 2004.

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).
