Earlier this year, Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci told NME that they were in the studio working with M83’s Anthony Gonzales – “not just demos” but “real recordings.” It’s looking like at least one of those recordings is going to see the light of day, and soon. Nothing’s been confirmed yet, but Killers fansite, thekillersnews.com (via Revolt TV), has done a great job of connecting dots many people may have missed.

Exhibit A – they point to a Vanity Fair scan posted by Island/Def Jam (it was quickly deleted) which stated that The Killers would be releasing a greatest hits compilation this fall and that it would include three new songs.

Exhibit B – they point to a now-deleted cryptic Tweet issued by The Killers, which read: “September 16th, the 10 year anniversary of our first show in London… #ShotAtTheNight.” Remember when we said that Vannucci spoke to NME? Well he and fontman Brandon Flowers also played the magazine a new song, which was described as a cross between ‘Smile Like You Mean It’ and ‘Miss Atomic Bomb’ and had a chorus that went “give me a shot at the night.”

If you haven’t put it together yet, The Killers’ fanbase (they call themselves “victims,” by the way) is positing that the band will release a single called “Shot at the Night” on September 16, the 10 year anniversary of their first show in London. They’re also speculating that this single is what M83 and The Killers have been working on, and will be included in the band’s upcoming great hits compilation, likely due out in the coming weeks. Watch this space for updates as we get them.
