The Killers Take Another Hiatus

Posted by - 11:28 AM on 11/11/13
The Killers' are going on a little hiatus for a while.
"I don't think it will take an unnaturally long time for us to get guys together, but it's time to take a breather and ground out a little bit ... I think everybody is looking forward to putting their feet up for a little while and having some normalcy." Frontman Brandon Flowers has already revealed that he's planning to make another solo album and Vannucci is hoping to record a follow-up to his 2011 album "Big Talk," adding, "I think I want to make another record. I'm already starting it. I like to keep moving. I love that notion of momentum. I think some of the guys are just going to chill out, keep writing probably, make sure to get some rest."

Last one didn't last very long, doubt this one will either. These guys are insanely consistent, so I don't think the break will affect them at all. Plus, if Flowers put out a proper follow-up to Flamingo I'll be very excited.

I'm definitely going to have to give Battle Born another go. I listened to it three times, and was "eh" on it. So it either didn't click right away, or I will just wind up disagreeing with the love it gets here.

Although admittedly, I am a much bigger fan of their more shallow pop music.

Always liked these guys a a "casual fan" sort of way. Was actually planning on starting to make my way through their discography today.

Still have yet to check out Battle Born, as I've honestly been weary of this band ever since Day & Age...Hot Fuss is a modern classic though, and Sam's Town is a respectable follow-up. Isn't this their second consecutive hiatus after an album release?

The new Christmas song will come out still, yes ?

I think they should have a break after the tension there's been. Look forward to another Big Talk LP.

I love this band, and I agree with this. Every other album has at least one song I don't care for at all.

Meh. Hot Fuss is still their only album I really enjoy.
