Nashville’s first family of bluesy alt-rockers Kings Of Leon return with a long-promised new album.
Last February, Kings Of Leon posted messages to social media that said, “the w8 is nearly over.” Another band with big plans derailed by 2020.
KOL bassist Jared Followill shared this sincerely self-aware message on Christmas Day.
Blame it on the holiday "cheer", but I just feel like sharing. @kingsofleon tweeted "the w8 is nearly over" TEN MONTHS ago. Enough. If you were promised new Kings music in 2 weeks, would you forgive us? Could you?

KOL spent the next week sharing snippets of several different songs, all presumably from that long-awaited 8th full-length.
Today we finally have our first new KOL song since the late-2016 release of WALLS. Listen below to “The Bandit” and let us know what you think of it.
We’ve also got a longer one called “100,000 People”.
Their new album When You See Yourself arrives March 5.
