The Killers are currently gearing up for the release of their new single, Bones, which is released on November 27.

It comes accompanied by a video by director Tim Burton, in his first ever foray into the world of the pop promo.

The video premieres tonight, October 31, on Film 4 at 11pm, following a Halloween screening of the Burton-directed Sleepy Hollow, and thereafter at 11.40pm on Channel 4.

Bones is the second single from the Killers’ second album, Sam’s Town, which celebrated three weeks at the top of the UK chart upon release, has already sold over half a million copies in the UK, and has also been a huge success throughout the world, reaching the top spot in four countries so far.
