Kings of Leon debut new material at Hyde Park gig

Kings of Leon debuted four brand new songs at their sell-out gig at Hyde Park last night (30th June.)

Playing to a capacity crowd of 60,000 people, the new songs had working titles including Immortals, Southbound and Radioactive.

Caleb Followill, frontman for the band, said: “”Since we saw you guys last we went and made a record. That’s what we put a lot of work into. Just yesterday some people at the record label got to hear a couple of songs from it. I don’t know if they want us to play a bunch of new songs but I think, ‘Fuck it’ – we’re gonna do it!”

Support came from 2010’s hottest new band The Drums and The Black Keys who drew their own sizeable audiences.
