LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - APRIL 06: Musician Brandon Flowers of The Killers performs onstage during the grand opening of T-Mobile Arena on April 6, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The weekend’s assault on concertgoers in Las Vegas has hit the entire world hard, of course, but it’s hit the Killers harder than some others since the group hails from Sin City.

The group has tweeted a simple message of support to its hometown, writing that “We’ve got heavy hearts. We love you, Las Vegas.”

The tragedy comes shortly after the group released its latest album, Wonderful Wonderful, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and is due to play the Austin City Limits Music Festival on Sunday (October 8) and again on October 15 along with other festivals this month before starting a U.K. tour on November 8 and a North American tour on January 5.
