Rumours of The Killers have been floating around on the internet with thier guitarist admitting he was sick of touring and Brandon Flowers mentioned he was making a solo album, but it seems the band may just be taking a break after their EMA performance this Sunday.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci has cleared up rumours after telling The Hollywood Reporter that their performance at the EMA's may be their last for a while so the band can 'take a breather'.

He told THR: "I think everybody is looking forward to putting their feet up for a little while and having some normalcy."

He went on to say that it won't be the end of the band just yet though: "I think it wil be a little while. I don't think it will take an unnaturally long time for us to get guys together. [But] its time to take a breather and ground out a little bit."

The Vegas rockers will headline the MTV World Stage on Friday 8 November before a Sunday performance at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam ahead of their release of 'Direct Hits' out on Monday 11 November to celebrate the 10th Anniversary as a band.

Vannucci reflected on the time The Killers have had as a band saying they've been "really lucky to have this crazy life we have."

But even if it takes a while for The Killers to reform, Vannucci hinted at possible solo ambitions: "In 2011, I made a record, and I think I want to make another. I'm already starting it. I love that notion of momentum. I think some of the other guys are just going to chill out, keep writing probaby, make sure to get some rest."
