Just in case you haven’t gotten enough of The Killers yet, though given Day & eh Age, the multiple festival appearances and never-ending tour (see below), fun with Coldplay and Bono, and threats to disband,  I’m not entirely sure how that’s possible, Brandon Flowers and Co. have you covered. In an interview with Billboard.com, drummer Ronnie Vannucci revealed that plans are in the works for two new releases – a cover album and live DVD.

Of course, considering the recently revealed cover of “Four Winds” and the fact The Killers will basically have played everywhere but the sun by the time the quartet caps off their world tour later this summer and if you haven’t seen them by then, you have no one else to blame but yourself, both releases seem utterly pointless. But because we know there is at least one person semi-interested – after all, how else are they selling out arenas and headlining festivals? – we will note that while nothing is set in stone, according to Vannucci, both a live DVD and cover album have been discussed.

If you’re interested, read more at Billboard. If you feel like we just wasted the last five minutes of your life, we apologize.
