Meanwhile, the Las Vegas indie rockers shared a statement with the fans about their upcoming Imploding The Mirage world tour last week.

The band are preparing to release their forthcoming album of the same name, which they will support with huge stadium dates across the UK, Europe and now the globe.

However, taking to social media they reassured fans that their plans are still going ahead.

They began: "People of Earth, greetings and salutations. We've been putting this tour together for a long time and we are extremely excited to finally share it with you. We have, of course, been paying close attention to the recent precautionary measures around the world and trust that the coronavirus is expected to follow traditional flu season patterns.”

They added: "We look forward to a great summer of shows. Look after each other - sing the chorus of Mr. Brightside when you wash your hands - and see you this summer!"

The statement comes just as The Killers share Caution, the first single to be taken from their new album.

The song is the lead single to come from their new album, which is set for release on 29 May 2020.

Listen to the single, which features an iconic guitar solo courtesy of the legendary former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, below:

The band's sold out stadium shows come on the back of the band’s triumphant Saturday night headline slot at Glastonbury 2019, where the group treated a rapturous crowd with surprise performances from The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and Pet Shop Boys.
