Kings Of Leon : Mechanical Bull

Kings Of Leon : Mechanical Bull
After a canceled tour and band turmoil that led fans to wonder whether Kings of Leon would ever release new material, the group has rallied back: they're set to release their sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull, on September 24. While further details are scarce, bassist Jared Followill told NME, "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of Youth & Young Manhood and Because of the Times." Rolling Stone can also confirm the band worked with longtime producer Angelo Petraglia in their new Nashville studio. The Mechanical Bull announcement comes after a long period of fan speculation on the future of the band; the group scrapped a 2011 tour citing "vocal issues and exhaustion" after frontman Caleb Followill left a Dallas stage and failed to return. Jared Followill later tweeted: "I can’t lie, there are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade." The band played a new song on June 8th, for the Governors Ball. Caleb Followill introduced the song by saying: "We're gonna play a new song we've never played before, so if we mess it up it's your fault." While we don't have a title yet, you can listen to the track below.

  1. “It’s like a mix of Youth & Young Manhood and Because of the Times.” It’s gonna be their best album.

    • A band claiming their new album is going to sound like their most critically acclaimed and popular work? What a surprise.

      • considering Only by the Night was their most “critically acclaimed” work, I’d say, shut the fuck up. They’re just giving a feel for the album. I don’t care one way or another how it sounds, still gonna listen to it, and hopefully enjoy it

        • Thats the spirit…
          Enjoy music… even if you don’t like it, it’s you who doesn’t… if you do… well, you do like it. And it is that that matters in the end.
          Altough that I must say that Youth & Young was their best album… cause it was the first… nah, but they were into a more deep and indie spirit and post rock way then they are nowadays… they seem more tender like 30 seconds to mars… no way that they are now the way they started it… only if they were like this all along and fooled some people… if thats the case I feel fooled.

  2. Yeah but he also said:

    When asked if it’s gonna sound like the earlier KoF:
    “Not really. There are definitely elements of it. Songs. Not as a whole though. It’s a culmination of all of them.”

    And when asked to which album is going to sound like:
    “Vibe/feeling could be compared to the first couple. It’s much more musically complicated though, so I’d have to say the last 2.”

  3. This sounds really really promising. My favorite band, they’ll never disappoint me…

  4. Why are Kings of Leon in the Indie section? o_O

    • The same for John Mayer…

      • I’m now a level 3 member so I’ve moved them both to into the Rock category :)

  5. new single ‘supersoaker’ to be available online next wednesday according to nme.com

  6. Kind of annoyed how they just made this album the combo breaker. All of their albums but this one will have 5 syllables. Unless they change the name. Which would be cool.

    • It still has 5 syllables like the old ones, ME-CHA-NI-CAL BULL.

    • You’re an idiot.

  7. Here’s the official artwork:

    • Okay, there is no way this album is not out there….if TOOL’s 10,000 Days snuck out 2 weeks before it’s initial release, no excuse why this has not come to light. It’s out there, believe me, someone has it…please post!!! Also digging the new album, only thing that bothers me is that they only have 2 verses, then a repetitive chorus in their songs. They need to be longer, with 3 verses, and at least 2 chorus, and not so repetitive at the end of their songs. This can be seen on Supersoaker, Wait for Me, Beautiful War, and on Family Tree. Only one that does not do this is It Don’t Matter. Is it just me, or does this bother anyone else. They are so talented, but need to extend their songs.

  10. I kinda liked the two songs, nothin mind blowing but enjoy them. The deluxe artwork is rad…the regular one, not so much. Looks like they are having fun..

  11. Three years later they are back, this is so so good!

  12. This is due 9/24, not 10/24…

  13. When will this leak?!

  14. Someone please leak this. I cant wait another 2 weeks for it to leak

  15. It’s wrong, guys. It’s due to September. :

  16. this is gonna be great!
    looking forward to the leak! :)

    • I have a strong doubt this will leak until a few days before release

  17. Where is this?!?!?!

  18. waiting for this download to finish then i may have some seriously good news for all the KOL fans!

    • ??

    • @Jess,

      Anything yet, getting very eager to hear this album.

    • well!!!!!!

    • This really needs to be updated either way…

    • Really wish we knew what you were talking about.

  19. The wait is painful . . .It HAS to be out there!

    • Maybe with some friends of theirs.

  20. Critics are starting to review this has to leak soon! http://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/kings-of-leon-mechanical-bull-first-listen

    • That “review” has me even more excited!

  21. i can’t wait for this album, the new single shows a lot of promise
    certainly sounding better than the last album, which wasn’t one of my favorites

  22. These guys take a lot of shit, but they truly are one of the best out there. Need a leak ASAP, I’m goin bonkers over here.

  23. They just performed Family Tree and Beautiful War on BBC

  24. Kings performing “Beautiful War” on BBC Radio 1! Great slow-builder.

  25. Kings of Leon cover Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own”, it’s pretty great

  26. leaked at CHEESYLEAKS

    • Its passworded so I’m guessing no?

  27. The most annoying thing about this is that Mechanical Bull will be released in eight days in Germany , I mean come on , only eight days left , how is it possible that this record didn’t leak already ? I can recall that Come Around Sundown also leaked one week before it’s official release date so let’s keep fingers crossed ;)

  28. How has this not leaked yet? Ya’ll must be holdin’ out!

  29. No, but for real…how the hell has this not leaked?!

  30. At this point even if it does leak I’m not downloading it. I’m going to just wait the next week and a few days and go to the store and grab it like the old days with that excitement for a new album. Screw it.

  31. fucking leak already

  32. This is getting ridiculous. I looked last night at my itunes and I downloaded CAS SEVENTEEN days before it was officially released!

    • They must have incentivized a lot of people to not leak this album

  33. where is this???

  34. ThIs is depressing waking up every morning with no news of a leak how is this possible?!

  35. why hasn’t this leaked yet?!

  36. Scene release wut

  37. This is what the scene release leak looks like

  38. really?i cant see it anywhere?

  39. Remember, no links are allowed.

  40. Check out newalbumreleases… looks like its just been uploaded

  41. Leaked on All Leaks.

  42. itleaked has it…. if thats your thing…

  43. It looks like its been taken down already. Cant find it. All bs links.

  44. Did they turn into the cure on this album wtf?

  45. Leaked at getmetal

  46. “Tonight”, and “Coming Back Again” are really the only songs I’m digging so far. Kinda disappointed. The album sounds weird and all over the place.
