11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week - Kings of Leon
The Kings Of Leon are comprised of three brothers (Caleb, Nathan & Jared Followill) along with cousin Matthew Followill. They emerged from Nashville, Tennessee at the beginning of 2000 and quickly established themselves as updated versions of Southern rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet. Surprisingly, they were initially popular in the UK, Australia and NZ before finally cracking the US market. They finally broke into mainstream success in 2008 with their hit 'Sex On Fire'. The boys have gone through the usual rock'n'roll tribulations of drinking, drugs and fighting and eventually took a break two years ago. They have returned with a new album Mechanical Bull, their most musically satisfying and mature offering to date.
