After spending time with Pearl Jam on half of its east coast tour (acquiring many new fans along the way), finishing their fourth studio album, and headlining multiple Europen festivals, Kings of Leon couldn’t have asked for a bigger summer. Today, the Tennessee based outfit looked to cap things off with the unveiling of Only By the Night’s album artwork and its smoking first single, “Sex on Fire”.

After a few early listens, Kings of Leon’s sound seems to be inching towards “pop”.  With dark guitar riffs and Caleb’s signature wail, this song still retains its country rock roots.Judging by the band’s back catalog, “Sex on Fire” certainly seems to be KoL’s first chance to receive some solid radio play on kol cover onlybythenight us 300x300 Check Out: Kings of Leon are on firemultiple stations, Top-40 and Rock alike.
