Kings Of Leon Never Gave Up

(Classic Rock) Kings Of Leon never doubted for a moment they'd return from their year of hell in 2011. The band faced serious personal issues, with brothers Caleb and Nathan Followill coming to blows, frontman Caleb walking off stage after an incomprehensible rant, and bassist Jared Followill's admission they were suffering from "internal sickness."

Two years later KOL return with sixth album Mechanical Bull, due out next month. And drummer Nathan insists a permanent split was never on the cards.

He tells Rolling Stone: "People ask us that, and if you ask any of us we'd say, 'No way.' Being a family band, we were bound to have that awkward first-time hangout at a show, or at Christmas or Thanksgiving. There's no avoiding it.

"If the band stopped, we're still a family and we'd see each other. So that wasn't a thought on our minds � we all knew we needed a break, but we knew it wasn't over." more on this story
