"Kings of Leon" stands as a prominent American rock band, Formed in the musical heartland of Nashville, Tennessee, in 1999, comprised of the Followill brothers—Caleb, Nathan, and Jared—alongside their cousin, Matthew Followill. From their inception, the band's sonic roots intertwined Southern rock, garage rock, and blues influences, crafting a distinctive sound that has gracefully evolved over the years.

The Kings initially garnered recognition in the United Kingdom, securing their place with an impressive string of nine Top 40 singles and two BRIT Awards in 2008. Their early albums found substantial success in the UK, with all three reaching the top five of the UK Albums Chart. "Because of the Times," their third studio release, even claimed the No. 1 spot.

However, it was the release of "Only by the Night" in September 2008 that catapulted Kings of Leon to international stardom, particularly in the United States. The album boasted chart-topping hits like "Sex on Fire," "Use Somebody," and "Notion," all claiming the number one spot on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. This album marked a pivotal moment, earning the band their first platinum-selling record in the U.S. and becoming Australia's best-selling album of 2008, certified platinum nine times.

Subsequent albums continued to showcase the band's versatility. "Come Around Sundown" (2010) and "Mechanical Bull" (2013) solidified their presence, leading to the release of their seventh studio album, "Walls," in 2016. The band's eighth studio effort, "When You See Yourself," emerged on March 5, 2021, further adding to their impressive discography.
