Bad news if you were excited by the news last week that The Killers have been working on new music. You’re not going to be able to hear any of it for quite some time yet. On the plus side, that’s good news for everyone else.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci told The Daily Star: “Dave [Keuning, guitar, is] becoming more of a father and wants more time off. We all totally respect that, because making and touring an album takes two and a half years of solid work around the world – more if it goes really well. Making the songs is the easy part. It’s all the promotion that goes with it that takes you away from your family and that’s tough”.

He added: “If we do take a long break, I might make another solo album, or if Queens Of The Stone Age’s drummer ever falls ill, I’ll fight for a spot with those guys”.
