Why See Kings of Leon?
Legends of Boogie Rock
A few records ago, KOL were a band on the brink, the pressures of fame putting a huge strain on the personal health, and the health of the band. Walls finds them totally at ease, throwing out the rule book and experimenting with a sound that's seen them become one of the biggest bands on the planet.
The band formed in 1999 in Nashville, by three brothers - Nathan, Jared and Caleb Followill - and their cousin Matthew. Only three years after they first started playing together as a band, they'd already received interest from record producers. They signed with RCA Records, and released the Holy Roller Novocaine EP in 2003. Their raw boogie rock, with more than a dash of Southern musical influence, was an immediate hit and saw their debut studio album - Youth and Young Manhood - released later in 2003.
Seven studio albums and ten years later, the Kings of Leon are still singing about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll - though now their lyrics often offer insight to the pressure fame can bring, even to a close-knit band such as they are.
