Kings of Leon appear to have confirmed their next album release. The Nashville natives released their last studio album, Mechanical Bull back in 2013, so anticipation amongst the fanbase for a new release is high. The teaser arrived via the band’s official social accounts, and almost fully confirmed by bassist Jared Followill on Twitter. It appears as if the new album will be called Walls.
The video, uploaded to Twitter, runs through the band's six albums to date before stating: "7 is coming". See those tweets below.
Just a few years ago, Kings Of Leon were the biggest rock band in the world, having secured their status as a highly credible indie-rock southern-flavored outfit they transposed into a larger stadium-sounding band, and secured themselves as mainstream, and yet cult.
Following their New Year's Eve show in Nashville, drummer Nathan Followill said the band are aiming to release album seven in 2016: "We've already started pre-production in our studio for the next record, but the main thing on the calendar for 2016 is getting the record finished. And then the whole press machine kicks up and doing press for the record." Caleb added "We enjoy this part of the process. Obviously there's a lot of work that goes into it and it can get stressful at times, but we're all in a good place and we're having fun with it and we're all excited to do something new." The album is likely to be recorded in LA, with Caleb saying the band are looking for inspiration: "We might just try to get a little change of scenery. Our first two albums we recorded in L.A., so we're going to try to go back and see if it inspires us, if it doesn't, we always have a studio at home, so we can always come back."
So, it seems as if the wait is over. With “Waste a Moment”, the first single from the new album slated for release in September it won’t be long until the fevered fanbase gets a taste of things to come.
