The Tennessean family affair known as Kings of Leon are embarking on a fall tour throughout the US in support of their upcoming LP, Only By the Night. The album, out on September 23, has already produced two singles, “Crawl” and “Sex on Fire.” The tunes are available for free through the various Kings of Leon websites, check above. Huge in the UK, its good to see that they are throwing a little love stateside. I’ll definitely be all over that Chicago date on Halloween.

For a while, I was an avid fan of this band. Youth and Young Manhood is still one of my favorite albums, but in each of the subsequent two albums it seems a little of the gritty, middle of nowhere America imagery fell to the wayside. Maybe it’s because these guys are far removed from that life now, but hopefully the new album returns to some of these roots. These guys are talented as hell, for sure, and have proven that they can play a live show, so this tour will be a must for any rock fan. Follow the jump for full details.

    im look warm to them, though I love tennessee and the farm (i made the green dragon and fireplace there), so anyone from TN is ok by me, where is emphasis on guitar virtuosity these days in this indy/emo/hipster rock these days?

    Oh yes baby… bring on the new Kings of Leon album Only By The Night! From what I’ve heard this album is going to be amazing. Can’t wait to see them touring in December (Manchester) – simply amazing live!!

    Shame they’re not playing Leeds fest this year although 2 years in a row would probably be too much.

    Cheers.
