Kings Of Leon are set to release a new studio record, their sixth, later this year. Bassist Jared Followill told NME that the album is a cross between the band’s 2003 debut, Youth And Young Manhood and its 2007 breakout, Because Of The Times, adding that he’s “amazed how youthful it sounds.” So get ready for a bunch of EDM sirens and beat drops, maybe.
The band also has a number of tour dates on the horizon, all of which are listed below.
