Kings Of Leon confirm new album for September
Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill has confirmed the band's new album will be out in September.
The record, the four-piece's sixth studio effort, is finished and is currently being sequenced. Speaking in this week's NME Followill said: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of 'Youth & Young Manhood' and 'Because Of The Times'."
Before the album is released, Kings of Leon will headline this summer's V festival. Taking place over the weekend of August 17-18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire, the two-day event will see the band take to the main stage along with Beyoncé – which will be her only European festival appearance this year. They will also play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July, staring at London's O2 Arena on June 12 and 13 before playing Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25. The tour then runs to Birmingham's LG Arena on July 9-10.
