The Killers - The Killers Disagree Over Hiatus Plans

The Killers are split over their decision to take a hiatus as guitarist Dave Keuning wants to spend time with his family, while drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. is desperate to make more music before he becomes "fat and ugly".

Keuning is eyeing an extended break from the group to be with his eight-year-old son Kyle, according to his bandmate Vannucci, Jr.

The drummer tells Britain's Daily Star, "Dave's 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 that's tough."

However, Vannucci, Jr., who doesn't have any kids with his photographer wife Lisa, feels the time is right to continue recording.

He insists, "Not having kids makes it hard for me to put my feet up. I just want to make music, because it's a gift and you don't get to do it for ever - you get fat and ugly soon enough."

Frontman Brandon Flowers, who released his solo debut Flamingo in 2010, recently admitted he would love to head into the studio by himself again.

He said, "I'm definitely gonna do another solo record at some point... I'm always writing songs, and I think - or I hope - that I'm always gonna have that. So what else am I supposed to do with myself?"
