Kings Of Leon's sixth studio album is called Mechanical Bull and will arrive on September 24th, according to Rolling Stone. The album, recorded at the band's new studio in Nashville, follows up 2010's Come Around Sundown. It's also the first new project from the Kings since a turbulent period two years ago in which frontman Caleb Followill left the stage during a Dallas concert and never came back, leading the quartet to cancel the rest of a North American tour. Bassist Jared Followill later tweeted: "I can't lie, there are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade."
The Kings seem to have rallied since then, with Jared recently saying about the new album, "I'm amazed how youthful it sounds."
Meanwhile, the band's scheduled headlining show on Friday (June 7th) at the Governor's Ball festival in New York City -- the first of a summer run for the band -- was scrapped due to extreme weather conditions.
Driving rain and high winds from Tropical Storm Andrea led to Friday's cancellation, although the Kings' set was quickly rescheduled to Saturday evening (June 8th).
Concert promoters shut down the festival on Friday after the wind began to blow speakers across the stage during a set by Feist.
