Televised Tune: On The Tube This Weekend

Kings of Leon’s backstory is well-known – the band is made up of three brothers and a cousin who spent their childhoods traveling from one tent revival to the next with an evangelist father/uncle. What isn’t as well-known are the inter-band dynamics which were on display earlier this month in Dallas as part of vomitgate. We’ll get a look at the group’s early days, inter-band dynamics and rise to fame when Talihina Sky: The Story of the Kings of Leon debuts on Showtime this Sunday at 10PM ET.
