It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Kings of Leon, but according to bassist Jared Followill, the band will return in September with a new album.

Speaking with NME, Followill said the band’s sixth studio, and followup to 2010’s Come Around Sundown, is finished and currently being sequenced. He described the material as a cross between their 2003 debut Youth and Young Manhood and 2007’s breakout Because of the Times, noting, “I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds.”

Prior to the album’s release, Kings of Leon will spend the summer playing a number of festivals across the globe. In America, they’re scheduled to headline Napa’s Bottle Rock Music & Arts Festival, Gulf Shore’s Hangout Music Festival, and NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival. Check out the full schedule below.
