Kings Of Leon guitarist Matthew Followill is sporting a svelte new figure after shedding almost three stone on tour.

The band has been on the road since May (13) and Followill has been using his free time to get in shape.

He is now showing off a slim new look after shedding around 18 kilograms (40 pounds).

Followill tells Britain's Daily Record newspaper, "I've lost around 40 pounds."

The band is due to headline Virgin Media's V Festival in the U.K. over the weekend (17-18Aug13).
