WATCH: Kodaline receive strange reception in Hong Kong airport

Kodaline landed in Hong Kong today to prepare for their Asian tour, and we're not sure they were ready for what gretted them at the airport.

The band, who have never been to Asia before, strolled through the departure hall to stumble upon a slightly different version of the Sound of Music.

And judging by band member Steve’s face, he was just as confused as we were.

The Dublin foursome are performing in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Osaka over the next few days, before preparing for their North American tour in September.

Busy, busy, busy.

They’ve even had to turn down collaboration offers recently to focus on their own thing.

Bassist Jason Boland exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "There's been a lot of offers but you never know with those things whether they're going to come out or what's going to become of them. But we're really focused on our own thing at the moment and getting our own thing down before we start going out and seeing what other people say."

The band - also featuring Mark Prendergast, Steve Garrigan and Vinny May - released their second studio album 'Coming Up for Air' earlier this year, but are now spending their time touring and starting to "push" themselves while writing new music.

Steve said: "I think we're becoming more of a band because we're sharing the songwriting a lot more.

And we're better musicians because we've played live so much. But we do push ourselves to try more stuff."

Keep up the good work lads!
