1. Waste a Moment Lyrics.
Walls (stylized as WALLS) is the seventh studio album by American rock band Kings of Leon. It was released on October 14, 2016, by RCA Records. The album title is an acronym for We Are Like Love Songs, which continues the band's unwritten rule of having five-syllable album titles
Kings of Leon – WALLS. It's not a game-changer for the Followills, but they do sound comfortable. Even a meat-and-potatoes rock band like Kings of Leon recognizes that, in 2016, the conventional album rollout is a bad move. If you’re at a certain level of superstardom, it benefits you to either drop your record unexpectedly or get all extracurricular with its promotion. Many artists do both. While the Kings probably won’t be releasing a short film or, as frontman Caleb Followill stated in a recent Billboard profile, going full Drake anytime soon, they’ve at least gotten a touch more avant-garde with the PR for their latest album, WALLS

Kings of Leon rolled along with the guitar rock revival of the early 2000s with their good looks, chugging riffs and swoon-worthy swagger. But it was the little things that set them apart from New York counterparts like The Strokes or Interpol: the family vibe within the band, the aching soulful voice of frontman Caleb Followill, and the atmosphere they brought to the table. Walls is album no. 7 for the band and, despite what the wannabe-Storm Thorgerson album cover and new producer Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons) might lead you to believe, there isn’t anything strange or new this time around. It’s business as usual for the boys: rocking riffs, Caleb’s howling voice, the tight rhythm section of Nathan and Jared Followill, etc. But true to KOF form, it’s the minor differences that stand out. At 47 minutes and 10 tracks, it’s the band’s shortest album to date with some of their fastest songs.
Southern alternative rock band Kings of Leon delivers an exceptional seventh album with ‘Walls. After a three-year hiatus, alt-rock collective Kings of Leon returns with seventh LP, Walls. Kings of Leon fought for years to gain relevancy in the mainstream. Only by Night gave them their breakthrough, earning Grammys in the process. After achieving success that long eluded them, the expectations are greater. Walls exceeds the expectations without questions. The Followill boys stepped up their game. Opener Waste a Moment is about rebelliousness and being carefree.
The problem for Kings of Leon hasn’t been their loss of confidence, but more so, the confusion surrounding their identity. A band that was once well accepted primarily in the UK and rejected in the US, they didn’t expect to hit ultra fame and stardom after drunkenly writing the hit-churning machine, ‘Only by the Night’ (featuring ‘Use Somebody’ and ‘Sex on Fire’).
