Brandon Flowers says The Killers will make another album because their last offering ''wasn't good enough''.

The frontman - who is set to release his solo album 'The Desired Effect' on May 18 - is keen for the 'Mr Brightside' hitmakers to make a new record as he believes they let themselves down with 'Battle Born' which was released in September 2012.

He said: ''Once [the band] all get on the same page, it'll work. I need to persuade them to like the same things as I do.''

The 33-year-old singer also went on to deny claims he had called his bandmates Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr ''lazy''.

He told NME: ''Did I say lazy? I tell you, recently Dave has really shown a new interest in being the guitar player for The Killers. I don't know if he saw [the quote]. I hope I didn't upset him.''

However, The Killers' drummer Ronnie isn't sure another album is in the pipeline for the BRIT Award winners.

He said: ''I don't fear the end of The Killers - if it's over, it's over. We scratch those [creative] itches [with side-projects]. I get a good feeling knowing Brandon is out there doing that too.

''I hope the other two do it. It gets weird sometimes when we starting talking about our s**t with the other two.''
