On release day, Kings of Leon will perform for the “Late Show with David Letterman” before playing a sold out show at New York City’s Webster Hall. That same day, the band’s SPIN cover hits newsstands. Following the New York City CD Release show, Kings of Leon will launch a North American tour (dates below) on October 11th at The Joint in Las Vegas making their way to the east coast, but not before stopping to play for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

The early reviews for Only By The Night have been stellar. Vanity Fair hails the new record as “a big leap forward and genuinely ups the ante,” while SPIN, in its four-star review, says that the band “still rule with a messy hand, applying rough magic and blurry, slurred imagery to their swashbuckling rock.”
