After three years away, Kings Of Leon are back with a bang this autumn.
The band’s new album ‘Walls’ is due out on 14 October, and today they have revealed the first track taken from it – ‘Waste A Moment’.
Listen to ‘Waste A Moment’:
‘Walls’ is Kings Of Leon’s seventh studio album, and is the follow-up to their 2013 album ‘Mechanical Bull’.
As well as featuring on the new series of Later with Jools Holland, Kings Of Leon have also given a big interview in this week’s NME in which they lament how they became more like ‘business partners’ than brothers and band mates at the height of their success.
Frontman Caleb Followill said: “After a while, it’s not ‘I’m going to do an interview with my brother’, it’s ‘I’m going to do an interview with the drummer’. When you get together, it’s never ‘We are the band’. We lost that.
“There were a lot of moments when we weren’t talking. It was ‘Man, we’ve become business partners. We haven’t maintained our friendship and our brotherhood, everything that we are.”
Bassist Jared Followill added: “We’d only see each other for the hour-and-a-half before a show. We went too far in the other direction. If you’re going to be friends and family, you can’t really be a band, or we can’t be this band.”
