The Killers have released a statement to quash rumours that they are splitting up.
The Las Vegas rockers said they wanted to assure fans "that any concerns about the future of the band are unfounded".
Guitarist Dave Keuning was reported last month as saying that their shows in Australia would be their last gigs "for a while".
The band made the statement as they announced that they had been forced to cancel scheduled dates on their Australian tour due to the illness of a family member.
The band said: "The Killers still intend to perform at the Good Vibrations Festival's Gold Coast and Melbourne shows next weekend. The Killers would also like to take this opportunity to assure their fans that any concerns about the future of the band are unfounded.
"They are all looking forward to some time off at the end of this tour as they have been on the road for a long time, but there are no plans for an indefinite hiatus."
In January, the band postponed dates in Asia citing "unforeseen circumstances".
