The Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci is set to release his debut solo album 'Big Talk' on July 11.

The record was recorded in Las Vegas and mixed by Alan Moulder. 'Getaways' will be the first single from the album, and will come out on May 10.

"I needed to do this, it's such a departure from what I'm used to, but now, having done it, it feels like the right thing to do," the sticksman said of recording under his own name. "It all feels very natural. I can't sit on a couch very long!"



Vannucci teamed up with his friend Tayler Milne and former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp to make the record.

The Killers are due to headline this year's Hard Rock Calling Festival at Hyde Park in London on June 24. For more information see Hardrockcalling.co.uk.
