Rockers The Kings of Leon have just released details on their upcoming new album. The Tennessee band is made up of Followill brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared and their cousin Matthew. The Followill's released their mix of Southern alt rock to the world in 2003 with the release of their debut studio album Youth and Young Manhood. Their third album Because of the Times was well received by critics and debuted at number one on UK and Ireland music chart though they only managed to climb to number 25 on American charts.

The band's fourth full length release Only By The Night is due out on September 23, 2008. Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, the album was co-produced by Angelo Petraglia, Jackquire King and of course the Followill's themselves. Tunes on the new record include "Crawl" and "Cold Desert".

Earlier this year the band hit the road with rockers Pearl Jam. Prior to the release of the record The Kings will play a few summer festivals including Scotland's T in the Park, the Spain Summercase Festival, V Festival in Staffordshire and Chelmsford as well as the Glastonbury Festival.
