Killers front man Brandon Flowers confirmed today that big news he had tweeted about earlier in the week was his upcoming solo album, 'Flamingo,' and not that the Killers were breaking up.
Based on some twitter posts earlier in the week about a “big announcement,” rumors were circulating that The Killers hiatus was actually a break up. As it turns out, the big announcement was confirmation of a suspected solo album by Killers front man Brandon Flowers, which will be titled Flamingo.After a week of Web teases, Flowers announced that he’d be stepping out on the band with a disc called Flamingo, which the band’s official Web site says is “coming soon.” The announcement, in the form of a broken-down neon sign that has the singer’s name and a playing-card club lit up in red, is accompanied by a spare electronic track made up of pinging synth notes and some wordless falsetto vocals.
A spokesperson for the group could not be reached for further details about the album’s release.It appears Flowers isn’t the only Killer taking a break, as drummer Ronnie Vannucci has signed up to perform in a supergroup called Mt. Desolation, featuring members of Keane, Mumford & Sons, Noah and the Whale and the Long Winters
