The Killers‘ drummer Ronnie Vannucci is streaming his debut album ‘Big Talk’ ahead of its official release date on Monday (July 18) – scroll down and click below to hear it.

The album, which was recorded in Las Vegas with The Strokes producer Joe Chicarelli and has been mixed by U2 and Glasvegas knob twiddler Alan Moulder, has been uploaded to the sticksman’s official page.

Vannucci made ‘Big Talk’ with his friend Tayler Milne and former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp.


The sticksman recently told NME he received a few handy tips from the rest of The Killers during the recording sessions for the album in a video you can also watch below.

“We share a studio so we’d see each other or I’d send them demos and I’m like ‘What do you think? I’m at a crossroads, What do you think of this b-section’,” he said. “So yeah, we showed each other stuff.”

He is set to tour the album later in the summer and Vannucci has already hinted at the sort of venues he will play.

Brandon [Flowers] said I should go and play some coffee houses or unannounced gigs and I haven’t done that yet but I’m going to,” he added.
