The Killers are showing their support to raise awareness of child trafficking, Angryape.com reports.
The Las Vegas band have partnered with MTV for the project, which has seen a video being created for their song "Goodnight, Travel Well".
The Killers say in a statement: "We are deeply shocked and appalled that women and children are forced into such exploitative situations."
"We hope that through this powerful video that millions of people across the world learn about this tragic form of modern-day slavery."
The Killers will record their next album while on tour, in a mobile recording studio they'll be taking on the road with them.
The band's next LP is a collection of cover versions, expected to be released around Christmas time, or in early 2010.
As for what songs we can expect to hear being covered, frontman Brandon Flowers said to Nme magazine: "It's still in the dream stages. It's something that we've always talked about doing and we're still talking about it."
"It's difficult for us each to pick songs that represent us as individuals. I mean, I have a lot of personalities myself! I've gone through everything from Neil Diamond to The Cars."
