The Killers LIVE at Lollapalooza 2013
"I think everybody is looking forward to putting their feet up for a little while and having some normalcy," drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. told THR.
Asked for a prediction if and when the band may get together next, he said: "I think it will be a little while. I don't think it will take an unnaturally long time for us to get guys together. [But] it's time to take a breather and ground out a little bit."
Talking about "Direct Hits," he said: "We're not in the habit of resting on our own laurels and looking back and giving ourselves a pat on the back for shit we have done. I am trying to keep looking ahead. [But] all of a sudden you had to think about it and how life has changed. We're really lucky to have this crazy life we have."
What would he like to do next? "In 2011, I made a record, and I think I want to make another record," the drummer said. "I'm already starting it. I like to keep moving. I love that notion of momentum. I think some of the guys are just going to chill out, keep writing probably, make sure to get some rest."

Asked about the style of his planned release and when it may come out, Vannucci said: "So far, it is sounding like somewhere between ZZ Top and Tron. I think it will be ready when it's ready -- probably next year."
Asked about the EMAs gigs, he said about MTV's biggest international event of the year: "It's one part promotion, one part party, one part art exhibit and another part vaudeville freak show. It's cool to be part of that dynamic."
Vannucci said he is particularly looking forward to performing. "I look forward to rock on live TV," he told THR. "It's a party, so I'm looking forward to being sweeped into the craziness of it all."
