The Killers' drummer Ronnie Vannucci has said that it's time for the band to "take a breather".

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, he said that following the band's performance at the MTV European Music Awards this weekend (November 10), the band will be taking some time out. When asked when they'll regroup, he said: "I think it will be a little while. I don't think it will take an unnaturally long time for us to get guys together. [But] it's time to take a breather and ground out a little bit."

He added: "I think everybody is looking forward to putting their feet up for a little while and having some normalcy."

The band's frontman Brandon Flowers has already revealed that he will be working on a new solo album next year and in the new interview Vannucci said he's set to start on the follow up to his Big Talk album, saying: "In 2011, I made a record, and I think I want to make another record. I'm already starting it. I like to keep moving. I love that notion of momentum. I think some of the guys are just going to chill out, keep writing probably, make sure to get some rest."

Of his new release Vannucci said: "So far, it is sounding like somewhere between ZZ Top and Tron. I think it will be ready when it's ready - probably next year."

The Killers played a one-off gig at London's Eventim Hammersmith Apollo last night (November 6). It was the Las Vegas four-piece's first show in the UK since they played Wembley Stadium and the nearby Garage club on the same night in June, and their only British concert to mark next week's release of their singles compilation 'Direct Hits'.
