Watch Kings of Leon Bring Fiery ‘Waste a Moment’ to ‘Fallon’

Rockers visit ‘The Tonight Show’ on day their new LP ‘Walls’ is released

Kings of Leon capped off the release of their new album Walls Friday by stopping by The Tonight Show to perform the LP’s anthemic first single “Waste a Moment.”

The band’s seventh album – the follow-up to 2013’s Mechanical Bull and the band’s first time working with Coldplay and Mumford & Sons producer Markus Dravs – witnesses the Followill clan entering what they perceive as the “mainstream” while still maintaining their distinctive sound.

“We’re trying to change people’s perception of [us],” Caleb Followill said the band’s new direction in a pre-Walls interview. “We have more depth on this album and more situations where we dipped our toe in before but never committed. Now we’re wanting to dive in. I know this is a pop-driven world and what we do isn’t necessarily at the top of the heap of music that people are listening to, but I feel like once people discover this album, it’s going to change them.”

Kings of Leon will hit the road for the first leg of a North American tour in support of the Taylor Swift-approved Walls in January.
