Ronnie Vannucci says the band will start writing sessions on May 17
The Killers will start working on new songs next week, according to drummer Ronnie Vannucci.
The sticksman-turned-solo-artist told XFM that the band already had a “pile of songs” that they wanted to show off to each other, and they had already nailed a date to do it.
“Tuesday [May 17] I think we start doing some writing again,” he said. “We have piles of songs we want to show each other. We’re going to get back in that room and start working.”
Meanwhile, Vannucci will release his debut solo album ‘Big Talk’ on July 11. Speaking about the LP he said: “I needed to do this, it’s such a departure from what I’m used to, but now, having done it, it feels like the right thing to do. It all feels very natural. I can’t sit on a couch very long!”
The Killers will headline this year’s Hard Rock Calling Festival on June 24 in London.
