Kings Of Leon say new album is ‘coming soon’

Drummer Nathan Followill says 'record 7' is on its way

Kings Of Leon‘s Nathan Followill has said that the band’s next album is “coming soon”.

The drummer made the comment on Twitter, after the band finished up their world tour for 2013’s ‘Mechanical Bull’ – their sixth LP – in Brazil. He wrote:

The tour was disrupted earlier this year 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.

Last month, Kings Of Leon played Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood Bowl and were joined by Chris Martin of Coldplay for two songs. Martin helped to perform ‘Talihina Sky’, a song from their 2003 debut album ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ that they rarely perform live. The title of the song later inspired a 2011 documentary about the band. Martin also stayed around to sing ‘Notion’ with the band and frontman Caleb Followill joked: “I hope you enjoyed that. That cost us a lot of money.”

It marked the second time that Chris Martin joined Kings Of Leon onstage this year, following his surprise appearance with the band at BBC Radio 1’s One Big Weekend in March. During that guest spot, Martin sang ‘Fans’ with the band.
