    After a summer fraught with drama, rumors of alcohol abuse and a possible split, those rock dudes and relatives in Kings of Leon will take a six-month sabbatical once they wrap their Australian tour.

    Remember, the band tabled its US tour after singer Caleb Followill experienced problems with his voice, but the group is heading back to Australia on Nov. 4 to make up some Oz dates that were previously canceled.

    Drummer Nathan Followill told news.com.au the following: "It'll be good to take six months off and be normal, enjoy being married. Matt's got a baby now. I'd say within six months we'll be getting back in songwriting mode. We can't stay gone too long or we'll get bored and fat and die of heart attacks." And fans will move on too quick! Strike while the iron is hot, KoL!

    Will you miss Kings of Leon? Or does the break only make you more psyched for when they come back?
