"Reverend" - Kings Of Leon [YouTube Audio Single]

Kings Of Leon have shared a fourth single from their upcoming album, WALLS. Listen to the emotional "Reverend" above, courtesy of the band's YouTube.

The Followill brothers' father, Ivan Leon Followill, is a reverend of the United Pentecostal Church and has been for a long time. The 2011 documentary film Talihina Sky documented his history with the radio quite nicely, and this song is a fitting tribute to his perseverance and heart.

The problem with this track is that the in-your-face drum beats feel a little out of sync with the subtlety happening elsewhere in the song. Sometimes it feels like they're trying too hard to make catchy dance-friendly radio singles, instead of the raw rock & roll they're capable of. Of course, that's just my opinion.

WALLS is set to be released on October 14, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon. Other songs from the upcoming album the band has shared are "the title track," "Waste A Moment," and "Around The World."
