Kings of Leon get in fight, talk new album

on February 23, 2009, 9:05am

Couldn’t get enough of “Sex on Fire”? Want to see what other tricks the Followills have up their sleeves? Then today is your day…sort of. When not getting in backstage brawls, Kings of Leon took some time at the Brit Awards last week to discuss their future endeavors with BBC6 Music (via Gigwise). Among the biggest topic of note? The prospects of a new studio album of course!

But before we move on, a word of caution from frontman Caleb Followill: “I think we are definitely considering doing something that people aren’t gonna expect from us.” Yes, as cousin/guitarist Matthew Followill explained, the followup to last year’s Only by the Night may offer a new sound from the band. “You never know with us, we kinda change it up every record. Everybody always says each record sounds different than the first. I mean, from our first record to our fourth sounds like a different band. It may be a little grungier”

So expect a “grungier,” different, and unexpected (well now you’re expecting it!) record from KOL sometime n 2010. Don’t believe they can do it again? Just remember, they used to look like this, and sound like this. Yes, bands do change, for better or worse.

Plus, the new material will allow Kings of Leon to mix things up in live, which is probably a good thing considering how many dates are currently on the itinerary.
