Talking to Hot Press, Nathan Followill says it's all systems go for his band's Irish dates
Speaking exclusively to Hot Press today, Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill laughed off recent internet and tabloid rumours that his band are splitting due to singer Caleb's battle with the bottle.
"According to that, this tour wasn't even going to happen," he told Peter Murphy, "so I think the fact that we've already played eight or ten shows should dispel that rumour. We don't know where that really came from. It was kinda funny, I mean, I'm sure some people looked at it as something that we leaked ourselves as a PR tactic to get our name back out there, but that would have been kind of silly to do. We're going on the biggest tour of our lives, I don't think we needed any help! The greatest thing was, when we landed here (in the UK), our security guy handed us the paper, and it was all: 'Kings Of Leon Cancel Their Tour'. And we were like, "'Sweet! Let's get a plane and go home! My bed is probably still warm!'"
