Fans speculated that it could mean new live dates for the band, who released their eighth studio album, When You See Yourself, in 2020.

One member of the outfit who we won't be seeing, however, is cousin Matthew Followill who will be taking time away to spend time with his family.

The bandit rockers - who are also made up of Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill took to Instagram to celebrate the birth of Matt's newborn baby, as well as announce his hiatus.

They wrote: "Please join us in congratulating @matfollowill and his wife, Johanna, on the birth of their new baby! During this special time, Matt has decided to be home with his family, so he will not be joining us on this leg of our When You See Yourself tour."

The rockers added: "However, you’re all in good hands as our long-time friend and touring member @timothydeaux will be standing in, along with former touring member @colemantime.

"We look forward to welcoming him back soon. And seeing all of you even sooner!"

Timothy Deaux, who is a member of garage band The Whigs, has toured with Kings of Leon since 2016 and multi-instrumentalist Chris Coleman played on tour with the band in the 2010s.

When You See Yourself, which included singles The Bandit and 100,000 People, was released as an NFT (non fungible token), making KOL the first band ever to do so.

Kings of Leon will kick off their live US dates at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida on 3 August this year.
