Great news, music fans … The Killers have announced (kinda sorta) that they are getting back together to make new music together! There was a common fear that the band might not reunite for another album after frontman Brandon Flowers went solo and released his own album. But according to drummer Ronnie Vannucci, the band have set a date next week to get together to begin working on a “pile of songs”!
The Killers will start working on new songs next week, according to drummer Ronnie Vannucci. The sticksman-turned-solo-artist told XFM that the band already had a “pile of songs” that they wanted to show off to each other, and they had already nailed a date to do it. “Tuesday [May 17] I think we start doing some writing again,” he said. “We have piles of songs we want to show each other. We’re going to get back in that room and start working.”
This really fantastic news! I am such a big fan of The Killers and I have been hoping that the band was planning to get together again for a new album. I’m not gonna lie … I really didn’t love Brandon’s solo album. It was OK but nothing special, IMHO. I am really excited that the band has a “pile of songs” to start working on. Who knows, we might even get a new album from The Killers by year’s end! Woot!!
