Southern rockers Kings of Leon have released their first single off the upcoming album ‘Mechanical Bull.’ The single, titled ‘Supersoaker,’ is reminiscent of their 2003 debut album. The catchy, soulful lyrics are paired with loud guitar bursts and funky rhythms.
This is the first music out of the band since they announced their hiatus in August of 2011 after singer Caleb Followill appeared onstage heavily intoxicated. During the show, Followill, abruptly left the stage claiming he was going to vomit, drink a beer and return to play three more songs. He never returned, the rest of the band apologized on his behalf and cancelled the remainder of their tour. The band’s humble upbringing and sudden rise to fame was the focus of the 2011 documentary Talihina Sky.
‘Mechanical Bull’ is set for release on September 24, 2013, listen to ‘Supersoaker’ below.
