The Kings of Leon have come a long way from the early years of Youth and Young Manhood, when the aura of their Southern Pentecostal upbringing still permeated the band. The mythology was suspect (three brothers and a cousin form a band named after their traveling preacher patriarch) but they looked just crazy enough for it to be true.
“Talahina Sky” presents a behind-the-scenes look at the band, complete with concert film, archival footage from their childhood. The film is set to have a work in progress screening at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. Take a look at the trailer below for a taste of the Southern rockers’ journey through corruption.
