Grammy Award-winning rockers Kings of Leon have confirmed the release date and title of their upcoming sixth studio album.

Following their 2010 album Come Around Sun Down, the Followill brothers will be releasing their new album entitled Mechanical Bull on 24th September through RCA Records.

When speaking to NME about the album earlier this year, bassist Jared said “I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds. It’s like a mix of ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ and ‘Because Of The Times’.”

This summer sees Kings of Leon touring across Europe and headlining a number of major European festivals including Open’er (Poland), Rock Werchter (Belgium), Bilbao BBK (Spain), Optimus Alive (Portugal) and V Festival (UK).
