It has been a few years sings the Kings toured extensively, their last North American run plagued by personal issues within the band. After a brief hiatus, the group announced their intention to return in 2012, with Mechanical Bull finally arriving this year. The band stayed active with their independent record label, Serpents & Snakes, in the interim.
