Expect to hear some fresh, new cuts when the Kings of Leon drop by the scenic Gorge Amphitheatre on July 17.
“Today is actually our last day in the studio, and we’re wrapping it up,” said singer-guitarist Caleb Followill of the Nashville band’s forthcoming album. He was taking part in a conference call with brother, Jared, and a bunch of rock writers from around the country today.
“There are times when it’s very tropical and beachy, but there’s always that dark chord in there that makes it Kings of Leon,” he said of the new material, also hinting at a twangier direction. “We have fiddle on this album. We have lap steel on this album.”
Added bonus: Northwest indie-rock heroes Built to Spill will open at the Gorge. Find ticket info here. And check back closer to the show date for more of what the brothers Followill said about the tour, the price of fame and new tunes.
