The Killers set to release album next year
The Killers are planning to release a new album next year.
The American rock band - consisting of Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci - have revealed they're in the "early stages" of penning tracks for the follow-up to their 2012 hit LP 'Battle Born.'
Speaking to NME Magazine, frontman Brandon said: "We're writing - we're in the early stages. Fans will be able to hear new music at the end of 2016 maybe.
"If The Killers want to take a year or two off then there's no reason for me not to make a solo record but if the fires are burning in the band then there will be a Killers record."
And the 34-year-old singer - who released his solo album 'The Desired Effect' six months ago - believes fans will be in for a treat as his approach to song writing has changed.
He explained: "When you get older you get more accustomed to doing it and it gets harder in a way.
"It's easier to write a song and finish a song now than when we used to really slave over it and the songs would be too long or we don't know exactly what we're doing.
"Now it's more second nature [but] it's harder to sift through what's terrible and what's great, because it's so easy to complete a song. So I think that's where you get a lot of bands being complacent and just going through the motions. You get a lot of bands that don't do great things later on, and so hopefully because I'm aware of that we can really do something better and something great this time."
