Kings of Leon
Since they released their debut album in 2003, Kings of Leon have been an oddly reliable landmark in rock 'n' roll. Continuously supplying bluesy, southern stadium stompers, the family band always releases a new album filled with arena-worthy material before you can say, "Hey, I wonder what Kings of Leon is up to?" In 2013, the Followills put out their sixth LP, Mechanical Bull, and it received relatively positive reception, indicating that appeal has yet to fade. They even played the festival circuit once more, including a muddy and delayed set at Governor's Ball last June. Now on tour, these Tennessee boys will hit NYC on Valentine's Day. Could you imagine a better way to celebrate with your significant other than to scream along to "Sex on Fire" with them? I think not.
