Band's drummer says the group needs to 'take a breather'
Rockers The Killers are planning another hiatus just weeks after speculation about the band's future surfaced after bassist Mark Stoermer's chose to sit out the group's Asian tour.

Nine Inch Nails frontman shares secrets of the band's 'Tension 2013' tour
By Gavin Edwards
In recording "Hesitation Marks," Nine Inch Nails' first album in five years, Trent Reznor opened his wallet just a bit more than normal. "We splurged on some new, high-quality speakers in the studio," he tells Rolling Stone. "So it's mixed almost like a hip-hop record, with a lot of attention to the low end and how different levels of sound interact." He's now bringing that grandiose sound to arena stages, as Nine Inch Nails recently kicked off their "Tension 2013" tour in Minneapolis earlier this month. Reznor expects to be on the road for most of the next year (accompanied by his wife and his two sons, who are now two and three years old). We discussed how he started preparing for the tour: by listening to his back catalog. "I tend to not listen to my own music when I'm not working on it," he says. "No real reason other than it's nice to get away from it."
