The Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci has named his first solo album 'Big Talk'.

The sticksman recorded the album, which was mixed by Alan Moulder, in London. It doesn't have a release date yet, but Vannucci has told NME he's started to think about playing songs from it live already.

"I'm not ready to be getting my hair curled and hitting the big stage," he admitted. "From a practical point of view it makes sense to try it out guerrilla style until we get our shit together."

Vannucci enlisted his friend Tyler Milne and former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp to play on the album.

He sings and plays guitar on the record, but admitted that "I can't shred yet. I'm gonna have to work on that."
