The Killers have admitted their 'Direct Hits' compilation album was too premature and they wish they had waited another 10 years.
The Killers don't feel ready to put out a greatest hits album.
The 'Mr. Brightside' rockers are about to release their 'Direct Hits' compilation but feel they should have waited another decade to amass a bigger catalogue of hits.
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci told the Daily Star newspaper: ''We'd wait another 10 years if it was up to us, but it's a contractual thing.
''We can fill a CD so it makes good business sense at this time of year.
''However, it's not like we're so pleased with ourselves we want to put it out. It feels like a douchie move.''
The 'Mr. Brightside' hitmakers insist they are just taking a break from music and have no plans to end their career just yet.
Ronnie added: ''I'm looking forward to coming back when we're ready. It's a very strange existence, a huge juggling act to navigate this rock 'n' roll life.
''The perception of us is what it is - people know what's up.
''Bands don't usually make it this long - if you get past 10 years, you're bionic. It's not like everything we touch turns to f**king gold.''
Ronnie said: ''That would be cool and worth discussing - taking that tradition and turning it on its head, playing on that cheesy notion.''
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
