The Killers have posted a cryptic message online concerning some "big news," NME reports.

After posting the message "Big News Coming Soon..." on their Facebook page on August 30, the band followed it up earlier today (September 3), by writing "September 16th, the 10 year anniversary of our first show in London ... #ShotAtTheNight."

The post saw fans guessing that the "big news" could either be a greatest hits album or the announcement of an anniversary gig. Rumours of a greatest hits album for the band have been doing the rounds on the Killers' fan forums recently, with suggestions that one or two new songs would feature on such a release - possibly including their recent collaboration with M83.

Earlier this year the band's drummer Ronnie Vannucci revealed that the band were already working on their fifth album, despite only releasing their last LP, "Battle Born," at the end of 2012.

"I hope there's a new album soon. We've been working on stuff," the drummer said to the Daily Star. "We were in the studio just the week before last. I want to put out a new record now but it's about getting us all on the same page. I bring a guitar with me everywhere. Playing the same songs over and over again is like having the same dinner every night. So you want to start getting in the kitchen and experimenting a bit."

    I think Taylor Swift wrote the lyrics to Battle Born and The Killers filled in the rest.
    I think they have good ideas. They should of listened to Bono when he told them to keep it simple. Maybe this time.
