Kings of Leon issued their most recent album Mechanical Bull in 2013, and now, the Nashville rockers are working on a follow-up they hope to release in the new year.

“The main thing on the calendar for 2016 is getting the record finished,” drummer Nathan Followill told the Associated Press. “And then the whole press machine kicks up and doing press for the record.”

This past summer, frontman Caleb Followill told Sirius XM Music the band initially started working on the album in an 174-year-old home that once belonged to Dolly Parton’s engineer located just across the street from their Nashville studio. However, for the recording process, the the band plans to head to L.A. “Our first two albums we recorded in L.A., so we’re going to try to go back and see if it inspires us,” the singer said. “If it doesn’t, we always have a studio at home, so we can always come back.”

“We’re all in a good place… and we’re all excited to do something new,” he added.

When that album arrives, it will serve as Kings of Leon’s seventh full-length to date.
