Southern indie giants Kings Of Leon are to release their new album 'Come Around Sundown' on October 18th.
Kings Of Leon are one of the hardest working bands around. Since releasing their fourth album 'Only By The Night' in 2008 the group have toured the world, playing dates on almost every continent.
An enormous success, 'Only By The Night' spent more than a year in the UK Top Forty and spawned several hit singles. Scooping four Grammy awards, the album even won over fans in their homeland becoming their most successful record yet in the United States.
However amid this spectacular success it seems that the band have been plotting their next move.
In a statement released today (August 4th) Kings Of Leon confirmed that they are set to release their fifth album 'Come Around Sundown' on October 18th.
Apparently written during clandestine meetings away from the road, three tracks from the album were showcased in a special show at Hyde Park. Performing in front of countless thousand fans, Kings Of Leon dropped in a handful of new songs. Stoking rumours of their new album, even the wildest of estimates struggled to see a new album dropping before January.
Recorded in New York the sessions were once again helmed by Angelo Petraglia and Jacquire King. Apparently recorded back in February, the lightning quick return comes as Kings Of Leon reach the end of their touring commitments.
The band are set to play the Golden Gate Park in Los Angeles before hitting Britain's twin site V Festival. Due to finish a North American tour at the end of September, Kings Of Leon will then get one month's reprieve before the release of their new album.
