The Nashville band released their last studio album, ‘Mechanical Bull’, in September 2013. Last year, drummer Nathan Followill hinted that they had been working on new material and promised that a follow-up LP would be “coming soon” but no official announcements have been made.

The band’s ‘Mechanical Bull’ world tour was disrupted earlier in 2014 when they were forced to cancel a number of live appearances following injuries sustained by Nathan Followill in a bus accident. Followill was hurt when a pedestrian “jumped in front” of their tourbus during their North American tour. He sustained broken ribs during the resulting emergency stop.
