Kings Of Leon fever!

Posted by: Ashley Brown

So many of us here in Cape Town are excited for the Kings Of Leon show this coming Wednesday 26 Oct 2011, including me. Kings of Leon was one of the first rock bands I listened to. These days kids only know Sex On Fire and Use Somebody, that's why we are giving you a little update on what you should know about Kings of Leon!

Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon:

Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon is now available for pre-order. The documentary is available in both standard DVD and Blu Ray as well as digitally via iTunes. The DVD and Blu Ray editions will come with 30 minutes of bonus features including additional scenes not included in the film, two commentaries from the band and filmmakers as well as home-movie footage. 

When three teenaged brothers and their cousin rebelled against their strict, religious Southern upbringing to form Kings of Leon, their humble backstory garnered almost as much attention as their music. Many questioned if they were really related and if rumors of their father being a Pentecostal preacher were true. Since then, the band has achieved worldwide, Grammy® Award-winning success and Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon lies to rest the mystery and myths as it details the rise to fame from their bible belt beginnings. 

The documentary kicks off at the annual Followill family reunion in the back woods of Talihina, OK, where the boys return to their roots and unwind with their family. First-time director and Followill friend Stephen C. Mitchell weaves personal home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s journey from their small-town beginnings -- spent in poverty and touring the circuit with their father, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and their devout mother -- to living the rock star dream. 

You can pre-order the documentary now at the official Kings of Leon store*
