M83 opening for Kings of Leon on U.K. tour

Here’s this week’s most unlikely pairing: M83, purveyor of atmospheric shoegaze, is slated to open for Kings of Leon, purveyors of ham-fisted rock that tries to be atmospheric, on an upcoming U.K. tour.


M83 joins the Followill gang on December 1 in England, and stays with them through December 22. Meanwhile, both bands have their own tours to attend to—Kings of Leon start a full U.S. tour, with openers We are Scientists, the Stills, and the Whigs, this weekend in Las Vegas, while M83 is currently in Europe, before coming back stateside for a North American tour with School of Seven Bells in November.

I didn't understand all the KOL hating until I saw them on SNL. They are far too beautiful to be taken seriously.
