Jared Followill: Kings of Leon Writing New Material

Kings of Leon

It looks like Kings of Leon are ready to get back into gear after taking a break following a tour cancellation last year. In an interview with BBC 6 Music, bassist Jared Followill dropped the news that the group is in the process of making a new album.

“We are in the writing process right now and it’s coming along pretty quickly,” he stated. “We’ll definitely get into the studio by the end of this year but we have no plans of finishing [an album] this year. But definitely early next year, so I think people should expect something from us sooner rather than later.”

During the group’s downtime, Followill has been working on his side project, Smoke & Jackal.
