Kings Of Leon announce first release on own label

Kings Of Leon announce first release on own label

Kings Of Leon will proudly release 'Some Kind Of Salvation', the new album by Tennessee brethren The Features. Having toured with The Features throughout the UK & US, the band fell in love with their sound, energy and explosive live show.

'We’ve been long-time supporters of The Features, they’re one of the best undiscovered bands in the world and we’re excited to be releasing Some Kind of Salvation' - Jared Followill, Kings of Leon.

Produced by Grammy-Award winning Jacquire King (Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Sea Wolf) and Brian Carter, 'Some Kind Of Salvation’ weaves a sound that can losely be described as a bulging mix of scrappy white-boy soul. The Features’ influences run the gamut of popular music over the last 50 years. Whereas some bands arrange certain songs to sound like this-or-that-era, The Features just let the musical pieces they've picked up through the years fall back into place, giving them an identity all their own.

The Features are Matthew Pelham (guitar,lead vocals), Roger Dabbs (bass guitar), Mark Bond (keyboards) and Rollum Haas (drums).

For the first time in 4 years the band will be heading to the Uk to play a selection of headlining shows:

10th - The Water Rats, London
12th - Club NME @ Koko, London
13th - Be @ Proud Gallery, London

19th - The Barfly, London
20th - Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
21st - King Tuts, Glasgow
22nd - Roadhouse, Manchester
