Kings Of Leon 'fight like brothers'

Kings Of Leon have said everyone thinks they don't get on as a band - when really they just squabble like all families do.

A very public meltdown in Dallas in 2011 led to some acrimonious tweets, the cancellation of 26 concert dates and a bunch of negative buzz that's persisted a surprisingly long time.

Since then, band members have played dozens of shows without incident, put down roots, married a few supermodels, had children and recorded an album.

They've moved on, and they're patiently waiting for their story to update.

"I think because of what happened in Dallas that was very much on the surface," bassist Jared Followill said. "And people were like, 'Wow, man, those guys are really not getting along,' and people think, 'Man, they really hated each other during that time.' People should know that we have always hated each other. That was not any more than usual. That was just more in the press."

The abrupt ending to the Dallas show and the resulting fallout was just a passing storm for the brothers Followill - Nathan, Caleb and Jared - and their cousin Matthew. A little bit of rock 'n' roll excess crossed with high heat, general exhaustion and ragged emotion flashing across the sky. Everything was fine two days later.

"We fight like brothers, then we hug and make up like brothers," lead singer Caleb Followill said. "It's just how it goes."

"And the beauty of it is you can fight as a band or bandmates," drummer Nathan Followill said, "but you make up as brothers or cousins."

The band have a new album, Mechanical Bull, which is out now.
