This year saw The Lathums hit a few milestones, playing their first headline show at Liverpool Sound City and supporting The Killers on some of their European tour dates.

The Las Vegas rockers also paid tribute to the band when they played Austria, with Brandon Flowers performing their How Beautiful Life Can Be track and inviting frontman Alex Moore to duet with him on stage.

Speaking to the crowd at Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria on Tuesday 13th July, the Las Vegas rocker explained: "We have had the great pleasure of playing a few shows with the Lathums. They're a great band from the UK and they're from Wigan, right?"He added:

"I first heard about them from this song. It's called How Beautiful Life Can Be and it's a beautiful song. We’re going to share it with you now."

The Lathums shared the incredible moment on Twitter, with the caption: "When Brandon Flowers of @thekillers asks you to sing one of your own songs live in Vienna".
