‘Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon’ is due to be released on on DVD, Blu Ray, on demand and download on October 31.
The film charts their lives from their humble beginnings in the deep South, 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, ‘Talihina Sky’ is the definitive story of the Kings of Leon, told in their own words. The DVD comes complete with bonus scenes, extras, home movies, an exclusive version of ‘Talihina Sky’ and the music videos for ‘Pyro’ and ‘Back Down South’.
Director, Steven Mitchell says: “10 years ago, I witnessed the creation of this family band in their mother’s Tennessee garage. Even then, I was fascinated by their strict Pentecostal upbringing and the eccentric and colourful characters that make up their family. There was no doubt in my mind that they would become one of the biggest rock bands in the world. My goal with this film was to document the roots of their music and how rock-n-roll transformed their lives. I am proud and honoured to share the story of Kings of Leon.”
Kings of Leon are currently on tour in South Africa playing two huge outdoor stadium shows before finishing their 18 month World tour in Australia next month.
The exclusive new video for ‘Talihina Sky’ from the film will premiere globally on Vevo on October 29, 2011.
