While Kings of Leon stop by a host of pavilions, amphitheaters, and Verizon Wireless Centers across the U.S. this summer — on a much-deserved victory lap celebrating the breakthrough success of their fourth album, Only by the Night — the Followill boys aren’t sticking solely to familiar tunes. As Spin reported from Saturday’s tour opener in Atlantic City, frontman Caleb Followill first announced the live debut of their new tunes: “You don’t know these songs. But one day you will.” The band then played “Immortals,” “Mary,” and “a song about being from the south.”
KoL kept the new tunes in the setlist on the following night in Saratoga Springs, and this time an audience member caught some nice footage. Watch tour openers the Whigs join the Kings for a song possibly called “Southbound” (a sub-par recording of “Mary” has hit the Internets, as well) below:
**Update: Another new song, “Radioactive,” has hit the Web, as well.
