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.
