Good news KOL fans!!
Kings of Leon have announced that they've taken some time out of their pigeon crap cleaning schedule to make a new album! Sources say that the band plans on releasing the new studio album possibly as soon as October 19.
Drummer Nathan Followill declares that the album is "locked and finished. With four of the new songs, Mary, Immortals, Radioactive, and Southbound, getting great reception at their concerts, Followill is happy that the fans are so excited about their new stuff. He says:
"They've been going over really well, a lot better than we thought they would. Some of them are getting better reactions than the older songs, which is bittersweet but great to see that [fans] are digging the direction we're heading in this record…It'll be great when we can play the whole new record…It's only confirmed that we're happy with the record we made and the choices we made song-wise. It's a great feeling to look down front every night, and there are kids singing every single world to songs that aren't even released yet, which just means they've watched them a gazillion times on YouTube. It makes you feel good that the fans are craving the new music that much."
You know, that's actually really cool that they're so in tune with what their fans want. We wish all bands cared that much!
