The Killers: 'We've already written four or five new songs'

The Killers have begun work on their fourth studio album and have already written a series of new songs, according to singer Brandon Flowers.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 last night (June 21), Flowers said that the band had reconvened and were now working in earnest on new material.

Asked if the band had written any songs for the follow-up to 2008's 'Day & Age', Flowers replied: "We have about four or five. We've put them up on the board and they're sounding good. We think they're strong."

The Killers play two intimate UK dates at London's Scala tonight (June 22) and tomorrow (June 23) in preparation for their headline slot at Hard Rock Calling, which they play on Friday (June 24).

Flowers admitted that the band are apprehensive about the shows, saying: "Those first gigs will definitely be nerve-wracking."
