Biography

After a childhood travelling
around the Deep South with their Pentecostal Preacher father Ivan
"Leon" Followill, the three brothers, Nathan, Caleb and Jared, were
finally allowed to embrace rock'n'roll when their parents divorced in 1997.
Moving to Nashville, they recruited cousin Matthew and in 2003 released the
debut album Youth and Young Manhood to rave reviews. Dubbed the
"Southern Strokes" due to the country twang accompanying their fiery
garage rock, the band kicked up a storm in the UK and Europe, but it took the
grander, more sonically ambitious sound of Aha Shake Heartbreak (2004)
and Because of the Times (2006) to crack the US. Steadily growing in
stature and creeping up the festival bills, Only by The Night in 2008
propelled them to the next level. Lead single “Sex on Fire” was their
first UK Number 1 single and headline slots at Glastonbury 2008 and
Reading/Leeds 2009 confirmed them as one of the world's leading bands. They won
Grammy Awards for “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” and the album
was their first to reach the top 5. 2010’s Come Around Sundown gave them
their best album chart showing ever, reaching Number 2 in America and Number 1
in several countries around the globe and the single “Radioactive” became
the second American top 40 pop hit and their fourth Alternative Number 1. It
also won them another Grammy for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with
Vocal. A following tour was cut short when lead singer Caleb Followill developed
health issues. They soon declared a brief hiatus. 2013’s Mechanical Bull
again went top 5 around the world. The 2016 album Walls was their first
to go Number 1 in their home country and included yet another Number 1
Alterative hit, “Waste a Moment”. The 2021 single “The Bandit” became
the first taste of the album When You See Yourself, which came out later
that year.
