Kings of Leon

Kings of Leon are such an underrated band. For some reason *cough*pitchfork*cough* they're completely ignored in the United States. I played both of their first two albums to death. I don't understand how you could listen to the Kings of Leon and not have a smile on your face.

I hate how they've been written off as "southern-fried strokes."

I've always thought of them as a 21st century Molly Hatchet. Maybe even James Gang. Just good ol' southern rock.

"Lets throw on some Kings of Leon, kick back, drink some beer, and shoot the shit."

Anyways, Kings of Leon have had the first track, "On Call," from their upcoming album, Because of the Times, up on their myspace for a while now. Needless to say, I'm digging it. Anyways, I've gotten my hands on the mp3, so if you'd like it, here it is:

Kings of Leon- On Call

Because of the Times will release April 3rd, and it is one of the 2007 albums that I am truly looking forward to.

I completely agree with everything you said about KOL. I am a huge fan with the misfortune of living in a town where no one know who they are. I am very much looking forward to their new CD. April 3rd. It is marked on ALL my calendars...and I STILL play Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak to death.
