Kings of Leon are heading out on the road in continuing support of their massive 2008 release, Only by Night. The Followill boys will be heading across the country from June to late September, including headlining spots at the 2010 Bonnaroo festival and a quick trip across the pond for the V Festival in the U.K. on August 21 and 22.

If news of a tour isn't enough to please fans, the band also has a new album in the works for later this year. "We're going to start writing and rehearsing new stuff, and then we'll go in the studio and see what happens," bassist Matthew Followill told MTV News at this year's Grammy Awards. Guitarist Jared Followill clarified that the album will most likely see a September or October release date.

This has been a good year for the Kings of Leon. Not only has their fourth studio album, Only by Night, garnered platinum status, but the quartet went back to their native Nashville as Grammy winners for the second consecutive year in a row, picking up trophies for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Record of the Year.
