I know this makes so many so so sad...

Sad news to report: We’ll be without our favorite feather-wearing frontman for the foreseeable future. Yes, boys and girls, Brandon Flowers and his Killers compadres have announced that they’ll be taking a hiatus following their upcoming show in Melbourne, Australia on February 21st.

“I’m not sure if people are aware of it but these are probably our last shows for a while. Unless some surprise thing comes up… We’re having a break,” guitarist Dave Keuning told the Associated Press (via Strangeglue).

“We haven’t had a break in quite a while. It’s just been touring and making records and on and on and on. It’s been like six years just kind of connected together.”

Keuning neither gave a timetable for when the band might return, nor noted what this means for the supposed forthcoming covers album. Sigh.

Who knows, but I bet the album art will be something like this:

The only part of this that interests me is that the Killers won't be at Coachella, which is fine.

And no, last years Coachella wasn't a fail. Take a preemptive chill pill.

Exactly. Im glad theyre taking a vacation, working non-stop like that takes a toll. Let them relax, recharge and find new inspiration.

BFlow on the other hand needs to ditch Mormonism and get a drug addiction.

If nothing else it would make their music more desperate and interesting.
