Brandon Flowers: The Killers last album wasn't good enough

Brandon Flowers has revealed The Killers will team up again for a new album after admitting their last album 'Battle Born', released in September 2012, "wasn't good enough".

Brandon Flowers says The Killers will make another album because their last offering "wasn't good enough".

The frontman - who is set to release his solo album 'The Desired Effect' on May 18 - is keen for the 'Mr Brightside' hitmakers to make a new record as he believes they let themselves down with 'Battle Born' which was released in September 2012.

He said: "Once [the band] all get on the same page, it'll work. I need to persuade them to like the same things as I do."

The 33-year-old singer also went on to deny claims he had called his bandmates Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr "lazy".

He told NME: "Did I say lazy? I tell you, recently Dave has really shown a new interest in being the guitar player for The Killers. I don't know if he saw [the quote]. I hope I didn't upset him."

However, The Killers' drummer Ronnie isn't sure another album is in the pipeline for the BRIT Award winners.

He said: "I don't fear the end of The Killers - if it's over, it's over. We scratch those [creative] itches [with side-projects]. I get a good feeling knowing Brandon is out there doing that too.

"I hope the other two do it. It gets weird sometimes when we starting talking about our s**t with the other two."
