UnCategorized Kings of Leon is an American rock band that formed in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee in 1999, consisting of brothers Anthony Caleb Followill (b. January 14, 1982, lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ivan Nathan Followill (b. June 26, 1979, drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Michael Jared Followill , with their cousin Cameron Matthew Followill . Each member of the family group is known by his middle name (second given name) as opposed to his first given name. The band’s early music was an upbeat blend of Southern rock and blues influences, but it has gradually expanded over the years to include a variety of genres and a more alternative, arena rock sound. Kings of Leon achieved initial success in the United Kingdom with a total of 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, also reached the No. 1 spot. After the release of Only by the Night in September 2008 the band achieved chart success in the United States. The singles "Sex on Fire," "Use Somebody," and "Notion" all peaked at No. 1 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. The album itself was their first ever Platinum-selling album in the United States, and was also the best-selling album of 2008 in Australia, being certified Platinum nine times. The band’s fifth album, .e Around Sundown, was released on October 18, 2010. In May 2010, Nathan Followill reported that the band had been recording in New York City since March 2010, and that, to their surprise, the tracks were .ing out "chilled out", "beach-y" and more like their Youth and Young Manhood sound.They had previously said, prior to getting back to the studio, that they would be looking to record a "darker" and "grungier" album. The band’s fifth album is called .e Around Sundown and was released on October 18, 2010 in the UK, and October 19, 2010 in the U.S.It was recorded in Nashville as well as New York between February and June 2010 with Angelo Petraglia and Jacquire King once more at the helm. In June 2010, the band embarked on a tour visiting over 50 cities in North America and Europe. The tour dates ran from June 5 to September 23.Following the release of .e Around Sundown in Australia, the band released all the tracks from the new album on their website. In early April 2011, an 87 minute film directed by Stephen C. Mitchell documenting the band’s lives was shown at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, called Talihina Sky, the name of an early Kings of Leon track. The Tribeca premiere was followed by scheduling a "hometown" premiere at the deadCENTER Film Festival in Oklahoma City, OK, on June 8, 2011. Jared mainly uses a Gibson Thunderbirds IV Alpine White, Ebony, but has now removed the scratchplate from the Ebony Thunderbird, creating an all-black look. He also smashed the Alpine White Thunderbird on the last gig of Kings of Leon’s 2009 Australian tour. Jared prefers the Ebony Thunderbird, but used his Vintage White Thunderbird for live shows because it produced a better tone for the band as a whole. He is rarely seen with another bass but he can also be seen using a Gibson EB-3. Jared has also played a Fender Jazz Bass, a Gibson EB-0, and Fender Precision Bass on earlier Kings of Leon albums, but used Thunderbirds exclusively on Because Of The Times, Only By the Night and for recent live shows. Jared uses D’Addario EXL165 Bass strings (Gauges 45-105), and his picks are .88 GrippX Standard, made by InTune Guitar Picks. Jared mainly plays with a pick, though he has stated that he finds finger style easier. He also uses his thumb to pluck the strings when he plays higher on the neck. He uses effects, particularly distortion, because he dislikes clean sounds. His tone is also heavy on higher frequencies because he tries to make his bass sound like a distorted baritone guitar.
