Kings of Leon               

Kings of Leon, formed in 1999 in Nashville, comprises 3 brothers and a cousin. The band’s early music was an upbeat blend of southern rock and blues influences, but the band has gradually expanded their sound to include a variety of genres, including alternative rock. Their initial success was in the United Kingdom with nine Top 40 singles, two BRIT Awards in 2008, and all three of the band’s albums at the time peaking in the top five of the UK Albums Chart; their third album, Because Of The Times, reached the number one spot. After the release of Only by the Night in 2008 they finally achieved chart success in the United States. The singles Sex On Fire, Use Somebody and Notion peaked at number one on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks, while the album itself was their first ever platinum-selling album in the U.S.
