Kings of Leon announced the first leg of the band's Mechanical Bull tour in October, with 16 dates stretching across the United States and Canada from Feb. 5 to March 8, all the while assuring fans from areas for which the tour hadn't announced dates that more would be sure to come in 2014.

Now the four-piece has made good on that promise, announcing the second leg on Dec. 9.

After taking a break for a little over a week following the end of the first leg, Kings of Leon will resume touring behind the band's newest album March 19 in Phoenix. In total, the just-announced dates encompass 11 shows in the U.S. and Canada, finishing up April 11 in New Orleans.
