Kings Of Leon- working on new album

Still not that far removed from 2007's Because Of The Times , Kings Of Leon are already making plans for their next release. Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine recently, the group revealed that they were wrapping up recording in Nashville’s Blackbird Studio and that the new album should be ready by September.
Having recently recovered from surgery to fix his arm after a scuffle with his brother and bandmate Nathan, lead singer Caleb apparently started writing for the new album only days after the surgery when they removed his arm from a sling. According to Caleb ... “I don’t know if it was the pills or what, but the melodies were so much stronger than anything I’ve ever done — it’s just really beautiful songs.”

The band can currently be seen on tour w/ Pearl Jam, before heading out at the end of June and into July for some festival dates across Europe.
