Kings of Leon have canceled the remainder of their U.S. tour following the death of brothers Caleb, Jared and Nathan Followill‘s mother, Betty Ann.

The band had shared last week that they were dropping off of two upcoming concerts to return home to Betty Ann, who’d been “dealing with a medical crisis.” Soon thereafter the sad news came that she had passed away.

In an Instagram post Thursday evening, KoL announced that they’d be staying off the road for the time being to “be with our families.”

“We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from our fans,” the band wrote. “Thanks for the kind words and all the love you’ve given to the entire Followill family.”

Along with the Followill brothers, Kings of Leon include their cousin, Matthew Followill, who’s Betty Ann’s nephew.
