The Killers are currently overseas in support of last year’s Battle Born. Earlier this week, they stopped by Manchester, UK — aka, the greatest city in Europe — where they surprised the locals by teaming with a local hero for a special cover.

“I don’t know if you know this or not, but we took our name from a New Order video,” frontman Brandon Flowers teased. “I think they’re from here? It was from a song called ‘Crystal’.” He then invited out frontman Bernard Sumner, who he called the “illustrious and praiseworthy Sheriff of Manchester”, to perform alongside the band. Watch the exciting performance in full below (via Rolling Stone).

In related news, we recently spoke with Sumner and drummer Stephen Morris about their forthcoming reunion album, touring, and whether or not they’d like to be issued Factory Records catalogue numbers post-mortem.
