The Killers got a visit from an unwanted guest while filming the video for ‘When You Were Young’ in Tlayacapan outside Mexico City.During the shoot of the western-themed video, Dave Keuning was visited by an lizard in his hotel room."It was in the reptile family, and it moved fast. I was almost asleep and I saw a mark on the wall that I didn’t think was there before, and I just was staring at it for like a minute," the guitarist told The Rock Radio."And then it ran around the room. You know, it just took off. These lizards are quick. And I couldn’t deal with that, so I left and got a room, like, three stories up or something."The band, are set to release their new album ‘Sam’s Town’ on October 4, while ‘When You Were Young’ comes out on September 18.

The Killers second album due in October
July 10th, 2006 under The Killers. [ Comments: none ]

The Killers will return Sept. 18 with "When You Were Young," the first single from their highly anticipated sophomore album, which is still untitled. The set is due Oct. 2 in the United Kingdom and a day later in North America via Island Def Jam. It was recorded in the band’s Las Vegas hometown with producers Flood and Alan Moulder.
Atop the band’s signature vintage keyboard sound and a thumping bass line, lead singer Brandon Flowers asks, "Can we climb this mountain / I don’t know / Higher now than ever before / I know we can make it if we take it slow."
Although the track list has yet to be revealed, other songs expected to make the final cut include "Read My Mind," "Bones," "Uncle Johnny Did Cocaine" and the title cut.
The new album is the follow-up to the Killers’ 2004 debut, "Hot Fuss," which has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"We’re trying to strip it down a little bit," lead singer Brandon Flowers previously told Billboard.com of the new material. "Not have it be so busy. Just let it breathe and let it be a great song. We wrote some great songs on the first one, but these have more of a classic feel."

Their first album was great and hoping to say that about the second album.
