Multi-platinum selling rock band Kings Of Leon has released their highly anticipated seventh studio album Walls today. 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 opened at #1 on the South African iTunes Top 100 albums chart as well as the Top Alternative albums charts.
‘Walls’, 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 shared 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 touches on band members’ personal stories, which Q Magazine calls “goosebump inducing” and “worth holding your breath for.”
