Followill's play massive gig in Hyde Park

Kings Of Leon previewed a host of new songs during their sell-out Hyde Park gig in London last night (June 30).

The fourpiece played four brand new songs as they headlined to 60,000 people at the capacity event, with support coming from the likes of The Drums and The Black Keys. The new songs the four-piece played had working titles including ‘Southbound’, ‘Immortals’ and ‘Radioactive’.

Speaking of the band’s new music, frontman Caleb Followill told the crowd: “Since we saw you guys last we went and made a record. That’s what we put a lot of work into. Just yesterday some people at the record label got to hear a couple of songs from it. I don’t know if they want us to play a bunch of new songs but I think, ‘Fuck it’ – we’re gonna do it!”

‘Crawl’
‘Taper Jean Girl’
‘My Party’
‘Be Somebody’
‘Immortals’
‘Molly’s Chambers’
‘Fans’
‘Milk’
‘Closer’
‘Mary’

Earlier in the evening, The Black Keys had warmed up for Kings Of Leon, playing for almost an hour as the sun began to set over the park. Meanwhile, newcomers The Drums also drew a sizable crowd and went down well with the audience, while The Whigs and The Features opened the show earlier in the day.
