Watch The Killers’ “Here With Me” video, directed by Tim Burton and starring Winona Ryder


The Killers follow their animated love story of “Miss Atomic Bomb” with the slightly creepier fare of “Here With Me”. The video re-teams legendary director Tim Burton and Winona Ryder with a tale of obsession and, naturally, insanity. Fans of old school Burton, who  ave grown tired of his more Disney flair, will no doubt revel over the throwback trademarks of wax mannequins and startling dark deco themes. Catch the clip and don’t let this chummy holiday season stop you from getting spooked. That clearly hasn’t thwarted this director.

This week, The Killers released a new video for “Miss Atomic Bomb“. Apparently this video wasn’t ready until this week so that’s why the band released previously a tour version with this single.

This is the 2nd music video directed by Burton. “Here with me” was written by Brandon Flowers and Fran Healy from Travis. Tim Burton took inspiration to make this video from the 1935 film ‘Mad Love‘ starring actor Peter Lorre.

“When I heard “Here with me” I remembered seeing a wax figure of Winona (Ryder) in the workshop of Louis Tussaud’s in Blackpool. The concept of the video is inspired by the movie Mad Love, 1935, starring Peter Lorre as well as in the work of Mario Bava “, – Tim Burton

The Killers had to cancel a couple of their shows in New Jersey, Toronto, and NYC due to Brandon’s laryngitis. The band posted the following message at their official website:

We regret to inform you that in addition to cancelling tonight’s show at Camden, NJ’s Susquehanna Bank Center, we have been forced to cancel our shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on December 14th and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on December 15th, due to Brandon coming down with laryngitis. We hope to have a new NYC date very soon and ticket holders are encouraged to hold on to their tickets for this future date. Refunds are also available at point of purchase. All tickets from the Toronto show will be honored for a future date, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Here With Me” appears on The Killers’ latest album Battle Born, which you can order here.
