Rockers Kings of Leon have blasted rumors they've switched labels, insisting they have a "great relationship" with Columbia Records bosses. Reports on Friday, January 22 suggested the "Use Somebody" hitmakers had walked away from their deal with Columbia to sign a new deal with Warner Brothers, which would have handed them more control over their productions, and a bigger slice of profits.

But the band has released a statement that reads, "Kings of Leon have always had and continue to have a great relationship with their label (Columbia)."

A rumor suggesting Kings of Leon have placed their music career in a new hand sparked after a source claimed, "Kings of Leon are one of the few bands on the planet who have enough heft to negotiate such a favorable deal." The insider continued to add, "It is virtually unheard of but it shows how keen Warner Brothers were (sic) to have them on their books."
