Brandon Flowers has said that he wants The Killers to get back together next year, and revealed he is "missing" the band while he is on hiatus and exploring a solo career. Speaking to the Metro, Flowers said of his band reconvening, "We don't have a date set but it will be next year. I miss them sometimes. We've shared a lot of experiences together. When the blows come its nice to have people there to share them with." Flowers' debut solo album "Flamingo" was released on Sept. 6 after a first single, "Crossfire," emerged in July. He plays a seven-date solo tour of the UK this October. The singer added that he found it strange to be recording without his normal band, saying, "It was unusual. I tried to find the similarities. It's still making music and doing the best I can. The band can't be replaced; I worked with friends of mine who are great musicians on this. The producers were also all very capable musicians." Flowers also said that the death of his mother earlier this year had little bearing on the contents of the record, and that he didn't make it to act as a catharsis. "It wasn't something I set out to do. I'd have preferred to have spent time with my family, wife and kids but this is my job and I felt I should work." Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.

    honestly, they are a really good band. not saying they are even in my top 50 favourite bands, but i respect them. they write good songs. if you don't like them, don't listen to them.

    Awesome. I'm not a huge fan of their albums, but they are one the best bands I've seen since moving to Nashville. Great live show.

    Best band of the decade. A lot better then any metal band that has ever existed. I have a different opinion then you, deal with it.

    Didn't come here to hate. Just pointing out some facts in the spirit of open discussion. If you are going to call someone a douche, it's "YOU'RE a douche", not "your". The article was on the front page of UG... this is NOT a Killers fan page. If all you want is to praise this band, I am sure that there is a forum full of die-hards who would be happy to comply with some of you.

    I didn't really like the last CD they cam out with accept maybe two or three songs.

    Now you know.

    This makes me happy, but at the same time I hope they veer far far away from Day & Age. Sam's Town was one of my favourite records of all time, And even Hot Fuss's lowest points were still overall better then all of Day & Age.

    Day and Age was somewhat of a let down after Sam's Town and Hot Fuss. The lyrics were thought provoking, but not amazing. He needs to get back to the amazing

    +10000, I like a Killers song every now and then and some are quite fun to play, but whining about someones opinion is much worse than someone hating on a band. You're not the band, stop getting so emotional over criticism. Nobody said the fans suck.

    "The Killers To Return In 2011" I didn't know they left, I don't care where they went and I'm exceedingly ambivalent about them coming back.

    yay, we get to hear that horrible monotone voice again.. Saying that I really liked their old stuff. Newer stuff is pretty bad tho.

    YES! I love the Killers! Although Day & Age swung aaaand missed... more Hot Fuss!

    I'm glad. The Killers are a good band, nothing spectacular, but nothing on the god awful level. Now I have another album to look forward to.

    Being totally subjective I think their music sounds very monotonous and it bores me, nice to see that they're having fun though

    Oh come on, if you don't like them, don't listen to them and you won't have a problem. Anyways, this is awesome news, something to look forward to next year.

    Wait....people still listen to the radio???

    There's worse music out there than the Killers. Shame that such a great name is linked to such an average band though. Flowers used auto-tune their entire first album and subsequent tour. Boo hiss. Sing it yourself.

He's right, reserve your hate for nickleback, coldplay, and the kings of leon.
    All three of them have great songs. Anyway... I love the Killers, but I seriously hope we don't repeat Day & Age. That album was about 70% horrible. Only the first 3 tracks are good, IMO, with some... okay highlights throughout. Hot Fuss and Sam's Town were pretty good throughout though.

    Nickelback, Coldplay, Kings of Leon are all faaaaar worse than the Killers.

    I hate it how people claim to hate a band, read an entire article about them, and then bash em. Sounds like a cry for attention to me

    I'm dying for this album to drop already. And I'm dying for new Killers music. Maybe I'll have an album to look forward to next year, now.
