“As soon as I knew we were about to get a record deal, I never slept” – Caleb FollowillThe Story of Kings of Leon is a unique insight into one of the biggest bands on the planet. Now a global phenomenon, the film charts their humble beginnings in the deep South, struggling with the grasp of God and the pleasures of the Devil through alcohol, recreational drugs and most importantly, the rock n’ roll that would make them superstars, to signing a record deal and selling out stadiums worldwide.
Featuring interviews with the full band – Caleb, Nathan, Jared, and Matthew Followill, plus exclusive footage of other family members and influential figures in the band’s lives and career, this is the first time their tremendous journey has been documented.
