Listen Kings of Leon on iHeartRadio

Kings of Leon may not be ardent hockey fans, but that doesn't mean they're not excited about headlining the season-opening Face-Off concert tonight in Montreal. 

Bassist Jared Followill tells they love watching Predators games when they're home in Nashville, and he says he and his bandmates even have a few connections to the two teams playing in tonight's game. 

Their friends in the Montreal band the Stills have taught them a lot about the Montreal Canadiens, and they played ping pong with Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Curtis Joseph backstage at one of their concerts in Toronto's Air Canada Centre. 

But Followill says they're not going to pick a side before the game, joking that they're trying to be Switzerland in this battle.
