Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill has admitted that he was “too drunk” last night to finish sequencing the band’s new album.
The band are currently in the studio working on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Come Around Sundown’. In a series of tweets, Followill gave an update on its progress. “Wine isn’t for everyone, but it is definitely for me,” he wrote. “Just tried for a sequence to the new album. Very exciting stuff. I can’t quite nail it down due to the being too drunk. #Tomorrow”. He later added: “My “drafts” on twitter should be titled “drunk thoughts you might tweet tomorrow if they’re not too offensive”.”
Kings of Leon are set to headline this summer’s V festival. Taking place over the weekend of August 17-18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire, the two-day event will see the band take to the main stage along with Beyoncé – which will be her only European festival appearance this year.
Kings Of Leon have also been confirmed to play a number of European festivals, including Poland’s Open’er Festival, Optimus Alive in Portugal and Rock Werchter in Belgium. They will play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July, staring at London’s O2 Arena on June 12 and 13 before playing Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25. The tour then runs to Birmingham’s LG Arena on July 9-10.
