The story of The Killers' first ten years together - during which they went from Vegas bellhops to Glastonbury headliners, earning themselves a reputation as one of the world's finest live bands and amassing a collection of Brit, NME, MTV and (most recently) ASCAP Awards that their collective mantlepiece now heaves under - is a tale of runaway success. Battle Born is its latest and greatest chapter, yet Ronnie re- mains adamant that, "Every record is a proving ground. We feel like we need to keep upping the ante with every new one we put out. We've got no interest in resting on our laurels."
