NEW VIDEO: Kings of Leon – Radioactive

I’ve been hearing about Kings of Leon working on their new album but now that I know “Come Around Sundown” is coming out October 19, I can’t wait. I think next to Metric (side post: when are THEY coming out with another album? Jeez..), these guys are probably my favourite band.

Anyway, back to the video: I love this track! It’s a catchy tune with that typical Caleb Followill raspiness that is the Kings of Leon sound. The song (and video) has that southern American feel to it; I guess the guys wanted to head back to their roots, which are showing a lot. In an MTV article, drummer Nathan Followill is quoted saying the type of music was what they grew up with.

“Gospel music was a big part of us growing up,” the drummer said, “so to be able to come back and revisit that part of our lives at this stage in our lives is a very special thing.”

It’s good to see the band taking a fresh approach to their music. I’m excited for the upcoming one and will definitely be keeping an eye out for it. What do you think of the “Radioactive”?
