Currently in Australia to perform at the AFL Grand Final, The Killers have revealed they are stepping away from the “Christmas song game”, after releasing an album of Yuletide tracks last year.
Speaking on Channel 10‘s The Project last night, frontman Brandon Flowers said, “We are finished with the Christmas song game, but we’re proud of what we did. We did 11 songs.”
Flowers said that while the band won’t be releasing any more Christmas music, they’ve planning on releasing their one (and only) Christmas album Don’t Waste Your Wishes on vinyl at some point.
“We didn’t release it on vinyl. We’re looking forward to doing a release of that on vinyl,” he said.
Don’t Waste Your Wishes featured The Killers’ yearly Christmas singles from 2006 to 2016, and all proceeds from sales of the album went to the Project Red campaign, raising funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in eight African countries.
The band will return to tour Australia in 2018, with all-ages arena shows plotted in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
