The Killers star Brandon Flowers has gone solo. The "Human" hitmaker will release his first solo album, "Flamingo", later this year. The news marked the launch of the rocker's own website

The Killers announced they were taking a break from touring at the beginning of 2010, after cancelling a series of dates in Australia and Asia due to the death of Flowers' mother.

Another member who has side project outside The Killers is drummer Ronnie Vannucci. Along with Noah and the Whale fiddle player Tom Hobden, Mumford and Sons' banjo player Winston Marshall, Keane's keyboard player/songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley and live bassist Jesse Quin, he is going to release a collaboration album under the name Mt. Desolution.

No release dates for both upcoming albums are announced.

Guyman is so right. As much as I adore Brandon Flowers' voice, his new album just doesn't , to me, feel as good as The Killers' ones.

I love that they're basically calling Mt. Desolation Ronnie Vannucci's side project. He's not even touring with them. He just contributed. Mt. Desolation was all Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley's and Jesse Quin's idea...

The Killers have that sound, that style that only comes from Brandon. The atmospheric symphonies are what make the killers so popular can only come from the rest of the members.
