Taken from their 'Mechanical Bull' LP...
Kings of Leon

Slice 'em however you like: they bleed success. Kings Of Leon's latest (sixth) album, 'Mechanical Bull', topped charts in the UK, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and peaked at two on the stateside Billboard 200, as well as in multiple European territories. The Followills, they sure know how to flog a sound.

Now, the foursome have a new single ready for release. 'Beautiful War' is, as you might imagine, taken from 'Mechanical Bull' (Clash review), and features a video directed by Casey McGrath.

When is the single out? The PR doesn't actually say. But you know how it goes with digital track sales these days: it's been out for ages

Watch the video for 'Beautiful War' above. S'alright, isn't it. Expensive.
