Taking a much-needed break following a slew of problem-stricken shows, the "Kings of Leon" have officially canceled the remainder of their North American tour.

Offering up a remorseful statement, one of the band's reps told press, "We are so sorry to say King of Leon are canceling their entire U.S. tour due to [lead singer] Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion."

Furthering their sentiment, their camp continued, “The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break.”

Being unable to reschedule the U.S. dates due to a jam-packed international lineup - the group says they'll be refunding all domestic ticket sales before continuing onward with the Canadian leg of their concert series on September 28.
