Brandon Flowers has revealed that he is planning to release a second solo album once The Killers have finished touring their latest album 'Battle Born'.

The frontman of the Las Vegas band released his first solo album, 'Flamingo', in 2010 and has revealed to NME that he is already planning a follow-up. Talking about his plans for the future, Flowers revealed: "I'm definitely gonna do another solo record at some point. 'Flamingo' wasn’t just me dipping my toes in the water. I really loved it. It was successful, and that helps, but I love those songs and I miss singing them. It wasn’t something I had totally planned on, but 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?"

Elsewhere in the feature, available in this week's issue of NME, on newsstands now, guitarist Mark Stoemer reveals that he is "nervous" ahead of the band's huge Wembley Stadium gig this Saturday (June 22). "I don’t get nervous for any show," says the tousle-haired guitarist, "but if I think about this one too much, I might. We’ve seen other bands play there, and we’ve talked about it in terms of when we might be able to do it ourselves. But I don’t think I realised just how big it was. Not too many bands have done it. It’s pretty amazing when you think about where we started, all the different venues we’ve played in London. But this is the peak. This is Mount Everest."

Last weekend The Killers headlined the Isle of Wight festival, appearing on the same bill as Bon Jovi, The Stones Roses, Bloc Party and The Maccabees. Slipping a cover of The Beatles 'When I'm Sixty-Four' into their career spanning set, The Killers also performed a number of fan favourites including 'Mr Brightside' and 'Human'.
