We the Kings Victims of Attempted Kidnapping

Posted by: Jason Tate (07/05/12)
Apparently We the Kings were the victims of an attempted kidnapping in Malaysia.
From the InterviewSo we get out of the car and start walking back to the hotel, and the promoter was there at the hotel and he was like, “What took you guys so long?” And we were like “We got pulled over cause we had an asshole for a driver.” We were really upset. And he was like, “Sarah didn’t take you?” And we were like, “No, we didn’t see Sarah, we just saw a van that said We The Kings on it.” Apparently we got into a car that had nothing to do with us. [The promoter] didn’t know who he was or what he was doing, and better yet, the cops were searching for him all night around the hotel. We were almost kidnapped. But the cops saved our lives by being shady cops. It was the craziest thing that has happened to us in our touring career.

Looks like someone heard their new single. Heyooo.

But seriously, the world is a fucked up place. Glad they're okay.

listen to the interview; they talk about the cab driver paying off a cop and the driver speeding with the band so that he couldn't be identified; it's f'n crazy. straight out of that movie Taken or whatever.

it begins at the 4:00 mark.

also, he talks about the new song and EP :)

good, it would have prevented them from peddling their shitty music to the developing world promoting it as 'american rock and roll'
