Kings of Leon Set Release Date for 'Mechanical Bull'

Kings of Leon Set Release Date for 'Mechanical Bull'
Kings of Leon have had a slightly rough couple of years that have included feuding with the creator of Glee, cancelling tours with claims of "exhaustion" and losing two tour busses in a fire. Undeterred, the mega-famous arena rockers are back with another album. Mechanical Bull is out on September 24 through RCA.

The album was recorded in the band's own studio in Nashville, TN, with returning collaborator Angelo Petraglia handling production. The first single is called "Supersoaker," and the group premiered it live at the Governor's Ball this past weekend in New York. Watch fan-shot footage of the song below, although be forewarned that the sound quality is rather shoddy.

Kings of Leon are touring in Europe in the coming weeks. See the schedule over at their website and expect more information about Mechanical Bull to be confirmed in due course.

This follows the band's 2010 album Come Around Sundown.
