Kings of Leon to perform at MTV EMAs

Kings of Leon will perform at the MTV EMAs.

The 'Use Somebody' hitmakers are set to take to the Ahoy Rotterdam stage in Rotterdam, Netherlands on Sunday November 6.

The rock group - which includes brothers Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew Followill - are also set to perform at an MTV World Stage production at the Old Luxor Theatre in the heart of Rotterdam on November 5.

And the band are not the only performers set to grace the stage during the awards ceremony; Bruno Mars, OneRepublic, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Shawn Mendes, DNCE, Lukas Graham and Zara Larsson are also confirmed to perform on November 6.

Meanwhile, Kings of Leon have been hard at work on their seventh studio album and Caleb admits it is a very "honest" record for the group.

He said: "There is some honesty on these. It's the seventh album and it took me this long to be honest and vulnerable at times. The guys all rallied behind me and told me to go for it. That one ['Over'] is kind of deep. It was fun to write though. I like to write songs from the outside looking in and that was fun to create a character and put myself in there ...

"We never expected to make seven albums, we were just happy to make one. We took advantage of that and made albums as quickly as we possibly could. I feel like on our seventh album we really found our stride, there are some special things on this that we haven't done before. We are very proud of it ...There are a lot of personal stories on this album ... We're still hungry and still young at heart."
