Multi-platinum selling rock band Kings Of Leon officially announced the release of their hugely anticipated seventh studio album Walls coming October 14 on Sony Music New Zealand. The Grammy Award winning group decided to return to their recording roots in Los Angeles and worked with famed producer Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Coldplay,Florence + the Machine).
The album, which comes three years after their Grammy Nominated album Mechanical Bull, has been teased the past several days in a series of cryptic social media posts that have had fans in a frenzy.
In a teaser from the band, Caleb Followill shares a glimpse of what’s to come and gives a mysterious foreshadowing of the album with a voiceover saying, “…the walls come down.” Lyrically, the album will touch on band members’ personal stories, which Q Magazine calls “goosebump inducing” and “worth holding your breath for.”
