The Daily Star reported last week that The Kaiser Chiefs were taking a break from music after the disappointing performance of their last single Good Days Bad Days. Now the Leeds quintet have issued a statement on their fanbase quashing these tabloid rumours. The band said " What do we have to be devastated about? We're halfway though our most enjoyable and biggest tour of Europe, and couldn't be happier with the way it's going...don't believe all you read!"
