Kings Of Leon man Jared Followill has said that the band are about to start work on the follow-up to their 2010 album 'Come Around Sundown'.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 last night, the bass player said that the four-piece have already met with producers with regards to their sixth studio album.

Followill said:

We've been meeting with producers every day so we're starting to get the ball rolling on album six. I don't know what I can say, but we're definitely planning on starting the record some point in the near future.


He added that working with Nick Brown of Mona on the Smoke & Jackal project, which he unveiled yesterday, has helped his approach to Kings Of Leon, stating: "Even doing the side project got my creative juices flowing again and just doing something completely different, I feel like it can bring more creativity to our band."

He added that frontman Caleb Followill has been writing "a lot" for the new album, saying: "Caleb has been writing a lot, and yeah, I think it's going to go really well."

Hopefully this means all is well in camp Followill after a fractious 2011, in which the band were forced to cancel their entire US tour after Caleb stormed offstage in Dallas and was deemed too ill and exhausted to tour.

His bandmates were later plagued by rumours that they wanted to kick him out of the band and were forcing him to go to rehab.
