Kings Are Back!
It’s been almost two years coming – but the Kings Of Leon are back with their highly anticipated fifth album!
Their brand spankin’ new record, named ‘Come Around Sundown’ will be released in Oz on October 15.
The Nashville rock act’s latest release is the follow-up to their hugely successful Grammy-Award winning album ‘Only By The Night,’ which sold over six million copies worldwide and remained at #1 on the ARIA Charts for an impressive 14 weeks.
Speaking about what fans can expect from their new material, lead singer Caleb Followill revealed,
“There are definitely times when it's very tropical and beachy, but there is always that dark chord in there that makes it Kings of Leon.
“We have actually done some things on this album that we've wanted to do for a long time, and I truly feel like with each album, we are getting closer to what it is that we want to do as a band.
“We have fiddle on this album and we have lap steel on this album, trumpet, and all kinds of stuff. We are really trying to make these songs live up to what it is that we want them to be, so there are a lot of elements that you may have never heard on Kings of Leon. But there are also a lot of elements that were on the early Kings of Leon demos. And you know, I'm going for it vocally; we are all going for it.”
