The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has revealed that he has quit drinking.

The singer, who is a devout Mormon, claims that he has toned down his partying lifestyle ever since he became a dad.

"Drinking definitely conflicted with what I was raised to believe and what I want to teach my children to believe," he told The Daily Mirror. "When I think about the pain that came with it, it's a no-brainer.

"Music has taken the place of drinking for me. I write songs in a hotel room at 2am rather than go to a party."

The Vegas four-piece are set to kick off a sold-out UK arena tour with two dates at London's 02 Arena on February 23-24 before wrapping up at Manchester MEN Arena on March 10.
