The Killers bassist, Mark Stoermer, has decided that he will be taking a break from touring with the group until further notice. The band said in a statement:

Mark has decided to take a break from The Killers touring—but don’t be surprised if you see him on stage from time to time. Everyone supports Mark’s decision to take a break to pursue other educational goals and releasing a solo album. The four of us continue to work on our fifth studio album together, and we’re all excited about the new songs we’re writing.
