American rockers Kings Of Leon could begin work on their next album this year despite a turbulent and problem-filled 2011. Drummer Nathan Followill has revealed that the band will "probably start kicking around" with some new material, their first since 2010's "Come Around Sundown", and that the band are friends again right now. 2011 saw the band suffer a number of problems, including on-stage walk-offs, internal conflicts and calls for frontman Caleb Followill to enter rehab not to mention that they cancelled an entire US tour amidst the problems. "Over the holidays, [you] break some bread, have some turkey, everyone makes up," Nathan told MTV. "I don't think it was as big as people thought it was, but the press machine takes it and runs with it." Continuing on about fresh material and their new Nashville studio, he said: "We're going to spend the next few months getting that up and running; kind of make it our little clubhouse to get there and just kind of goof off whenever we want to. But, I'd say within the next six months, we'll probably start kicking some stuff around." Nathan's brother Caleb has also hinted that an album could be on the way, confessing "I've been writing a lot. Kinda want everyone to get a little break from each other, but whenever they're ready, I want to play some stuff. The melodies are really strong, and the lyrics that I have written I think are pretty good, but we'll see. These guys are always a good judge of if I'm going the right way with something or not." We will keep you updated on the Kings Of Leon as more news surfaces. Thanks for the report to Stereoboard.com.

    "HEY GUYS I WROTE A NEW SONG!" "What's it like?" "3 chords, intro lick, sweaty-sounding chorus" "PERFECT, LET'S START RECORDING"

    kings of leon will always have my respect, having written one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs of the 21st century. ...and it's coming closer

    The first 2 albums were the best, The others turned more mainstream but still pretty good to me. Perfect road trip music.

    This just in. Kings of Leon are irrelevant to music these days.

    I thought the singer had a temper tantrum last year about performing. Why would he do this again? Money talks. Not cool

    I'd actually forgotten how good that song is, thank you. The only thing I associate them with these days is Sex on Fire, Use Somebody, sweaty chavs singing along and them storming off stage for various minor reasons.

    Come Around Sundown may not be their best but it's still better than 99% of music out today. The backlash was inevitable after the success of Only By the Night.
