Kings of Leon have witnessed a brutal bar fight in "Pyro" music video. The alternative rock band, which is fronted by lead vocals and rhythm guitarist Caleb Followill, have treated fans around the world with the video for their song off fifth album "Come Around Sundown". In it, they are seen watching a fight while keep on singing and playing their tune in a bar.
The clip, which takes around four minutes long to play, begins with a scene showing a young man coming in to get a drink and then heroically makes himself involved in a fight between a man and his girlfriend. The video continues with a glimpse of unexpected thing in which the beaten young man slowly begins to rise as his wounds magically healed. He opens his eyes and then flies to the heaven.

Caleb Followill has revealed that he is no longer fond of the party lifestyle. The Kings of Leon frontman told The Sun that he prefers group games such as ping pong and darts over drinking and drugs as he is getting older. "We still party a little bit. There's not really drugs involved anymore. But we try to make sure that we're on the road with bands we're friends with," he explained. "So last night, after the show it was us and The Whigs who are our friends as (more) »

When the whole world's broken, sometimes you just need a little music, y'know? Welcome to the World's Worst Bar Ever, host to Kings of Leon's music video for "Pyro." It's hardly a locale for royalty, as the quartet plays to sad patrons -- the wheelchair-bound, the domestic abuser, the lonely stripper, the awkward mismatched dates, the bitter bartender. As I said in my review of Kol's newest "Come Around Sundown," "Pyro" features frontman Caleb Followill pushing some pretty strong religious imagery, admitting "I don't wanna be your cornerstone." Yet it's the band that acts as a guide to heaven/the Light/an afterlife to »
Kings of Leon call each other "stupid and ugly". The "Radioactive" group, made up of brothers Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew Followill, say their close familial bond enables them to be more open with each other than most bands, which has an effect on their music.
"Everybody kind of pulls in different directions, and our sound is created in that push and pull," frontman Caleb said. "That's Kings Of Leon, whether we like it or not. I think a band that wasn't related might find that hard to take. We can look at each other and be like, 'You're stupid, you're ugly, and that part sucks a**. That's brother to brother - once we all step up to the mark, all that is forgotten."
The band's latest album, "Come Around Sundown", features mostly improvised lyrics from Caleb, and Nathan, the band's drummer, reckons that »
If given a choice between tickets to a presidential inauguration, a Super Bowl or a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, a true American will always pick the latter.
Why? Because presidents come and go, and we never remember who won the Super Bowl a mere 36 hours after the last commercial aired. But the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has angels. That's right, friggin' angels. Lots of them.
And being the religious sort that we are, when given the opportunity to hang backstage on Wednesday (Nov. 10) with heavenly bodies in various states of undress before the show, we took it.
But we should warn you that reality sometimes falls far short of fantasy. And while we definitely saw things that made us more certain than ever that God exists (thank you Erin Heatherton for not realizing your robe came with a belt), at no point did any of the angels give us hope that we, »
The Angels of Victoria's Secret gathered in NYC yesterday for their annual runway extravaganza. Adriana Lima, who opened up last week about sneaking candy into her diet, joined Alessandra Ambrosio to lead the girls prepping during the afternoon, and we had a chance to watch as they had their hair and makeup done - stay tuned for the video to come on PopSugar TV! Alessandra spoke about how she loves the way the girls have all become friends, while Karolina Kurkova, back with the company after taking last year off to have her son, said being a member of the Vs family is a big compliment. Others like Lily Donaldson and Chanel Iman attested to a solid night's sleep being to the secret to looking great for the cameras, while Isabel Goulart commented that she didn't diet or anything because she was just born looking good. It was a sentiment echoed by her fellow Brazilian, »

It was bare skin, hot rockers and energy galore at tonight's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York City. Tongues were wagging as the models strutted a gold glitter runway in everything from jungle-themed underwear to skimpy, barely there sportswear. In the front row for the lingerie extravaganza? Maxwell, Russell Simmons, Debbie Harry, Malin Akerman, Adam Levine, Vin Diesel and Caleb Followill. See just how rowdy things got during the event... Kicking off the runway ruckus was an announcement that all cell phones and cameras could not be used. "Why would you be looking at them anyway during this?" asked the announcer. Apparently this did not apply to »
Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has acknowledged that the band's latest album Come Around Sundown isn't as upbeat as their previous releases. The musician told Reuters that he wanted the new LP to reflect the "melancholy" that the band has felt over the last year. "There's only a couple up-tempo numbers," he said. "I think that has a lot to do with not just where we are as people, but the fact that we recorded in New York." The star further explained: "We were pretty melancholy and a little homesick. So every time we picked up an instrument it would (more) »

Caleb Followill has confessed that he never planned for 'Radioactive' to become a single. Speaking to MTV News, the Kings of Leon frontman said that he never felt the track was strong enough to be released on its own. "I didn't think it would be a single, let alone the first one. I mean, the vocal, I mess up on the first verse, I mess up on the second verse, I mean, my voice is off, so I really didn't think (more) »

Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill has said that their new album Come Around Sundown "sounds better with a cocktail". Followill told MTV News that the tracks from the band's fifth LP were inspired by their enjoyment of the night time. He said: "I don’t think we had any intention of making the songs more about the night time, but maybe the music we were listening to was inspired by that, or maybe just the fact that we enjoy the (more) »

When, last Friday, my boss (his name is Charlie and he gives me assignments via speaker phone) asked if I would be interested in sitting in on a Kings of Leon interview for Bwe and The VH1 Blog and then writing about it, I was offended. I was offended because it’s like Charlie didn’t even know me. If anyone really knew me they would know that they wouldn’t have to ask such a thing. They would already know that there are three things in this world that I hold sacred: Pretentious references, handsome men, and handsome men in bands. Whatever my scruples might be about handsome men in bands selling overpriced bandanas is besides the point. I was In. So, it was with great anticipation that I sat in while VH1 News’ Janell Snowden interviewed Kol, which wasn’t so much Kol as it was Caleb Followill and Jared Followill. »

Today, Kings of Leon arrived in the MTV Newsroom just in time for me to turn into an 11-year-old girl. (Greasy hair from incessant twirling and sweaty feet? Check!) But before we get into the details of their visit (wherein they talked about hipsters, money and their great new album Come Around Sundown), here's an overview of my Kol fan stats: I bought my first Kol album in the summer of 2008, I now know and like every song they've ever made and when I saw them play in Miami in 2009, singer Caleb Followill made eye contact with me several times even though I was in the upper deck of the arena.
But let's get back to the present. When I heard they were coming to the MTV Newsroom, my transition from 25-year-old professional to rabid teeny bopper was almost immediate. Naturally, as a rabid teeny bopper who still enjoys a good beer, »

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has confessed his addiction to painkillers wiped his memory. The "Sex on Fire" singer has confessed he got hooked on pills after having surgery on his shoulder two years ago.
At the time, the band had released their album "Only by the Night", but Caleb, 28, was on taking such strong medication he doesn't remember much about its launch. The heartthrob musician, who is now clean, said in an interview with The Sun newspaper, " 'Only By The Night' was the most messed up."
"That was the party record. I don't remember a lot of it. I had surgery on my shoulder so they gave me pain pills which I kind of got hooked on."

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has revealed that he once considered pursuing a career in the Us military. According to Ok, the rocker noted that he was initially drawn to national service after he finished school because he wanted to escape dissatisfaction with his own life. "We were actually painting houses in Oklahoma. We were sitting in a parking lot. I look and there was a thing to sign up for the military," he said. Followill continued: "I was looking at it really hard and thinking I'm (more) »

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has admitted that he was at fault for their performance at last year's Reading Festival. The singer and guitarist cursed at the audience after the band's performance was not well-received, before further berating the crowd on Twitter days later. He told BBC 6 Music: "After we finished the tour [in 2009], after we went home, after about three weeks, I came to terms with it and I was proud of what we'd done. "I wanted to do some interviews and just apologise for my attitude. We took it out on a lot of people, me particularly, (more) »

Kings Of Leon frontman Caleb Followill had a "Kurt Cobain" moment after the release of "Only by the Night". The singer with the "Sex on Fire" rockers said the unexpected success of the band's breakthrough fourth album inspired him to have a mini meltdown, where he felt like Nirvana singer Kurt, who was notoriously uncomfortable with his band's success and found celebrity very hard to deal with.
"I can remember, we were on the road and I just found out that my house had been broken into and on top of that the record was doing rally good," he told BBC6 Music. "And that was kind of my Kurt Cobain moment when I was hating the success, and I was scared and I thought people are going to think we did this on purpose and that we made this record so it could be big."
