Come Around Sundown Set To Be Released October 19, 2010
Columbia Records UK is excited to announce that Kings of Leon will release the highly anticipated fifth album, Come Around Sundown, on October 18, 2010. It was recorded in New York at Avatar Studios and produced once again by Angelo Petraglia and Jacquire King. The album will be released on October 19 in the US via RCA Records.
Come Around Sundown is the follow-up to the hugely successful Only By The Night, which sold over six million copies worldwide and garnered four Grammy Awards and two Brits. It's yet another bold and expansive statement by the Nashville, Tennessee-based quartet who, in the last two years, have become one of the biggest bands in the world; also one of the most creatively restless.
As proven throughout their storied career, Kings of Leon love to work. Whether writing, recording or touring, the band is constantly in motion. Once they finished touring in support of Only By The Night at the end of October of 2009, they went back in the studio to record in February 2010.
This past June, they returned to their home state with a triumphant headlining slot at the prestigious Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, played to 65,000 fans at their long sold out headline show in London's Hyde Park and then began a North American shed tour in July that will end on September 23. In two weeks, the band will headline the Outside Lands Music & Arts festival in San Francisco's legendary Golden Gate Park, before returning to the UK to headline the V festival in Chelmsford & Stafford Park.
