The Followill boys are back. Debuting the first single from their highly anticipated sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull, Kings of Leon have provided us with an indie summer tune! There’s something within this track for everyone. If this is the new sound from the new album then this might the album which unites fans of old KOL and new KOL (although, if you only like KOL for Sex On Fire…shame on you). It’s got everything we’ve come to expect from the band, catchy riffs, raspy vocals from Caleb and above all that…a showcase of talent. Whether you love KOL or hate them, there’s no denying how much they’ve achieved in the past decade. They definitely deserve the success after battling so hard to get started (watch the fantastic Talihina Sky documentary to learn more about the band and the struggles they face each day. *Spoiler Alert* It’s mainly Caleb’s ego) and get signed by a record label. After listening to this track, I certainly can’t wait for the highly anticipated album to be released and I really hope it isn’t their last! So…who’s up for a water fight?
Supersoaker is available to download now. Mechanical Bull will be released 23rd September on RCA Records.
