Since their debut in 2003, Kings of Leon - Caleb (guitar/vocals), Nathan (drums), Jared (bass) and Matthew Followill (guitar) - has released eight albums and sold over 20 million albums and nearly 40 million singles worldwide.

They have three Grammy Awards, three NME Awards, two BRIT Awards, and one Juno Award.

The band have toured the world, playing at stadiums, arenas and headlining major festivals including Glastonbury, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Reading and Leeds on three separate occasions.

Can We Please Have Fun, as its title suggests is a document of one of this era’s great rock and roll bands cutting loose, trying new things, and having fun.

Recorded at Dark Horse studio and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon, the album sees the band hark back to their gritty origins, while simultaneously finding new gears.

It’s the sound of a band unified in vision and purpose, freed from any expectations and the album the band says they’ve always wanted to make.

“It was the most enjoyable record I’ve ever been a part of,” Caleb says. 

Nathan adds: “It’s like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable."

The group is gearing up for a monumental year, and they’re ready to take the world by storm. 

“When you have a band, there’s a bond like no other, and when you have family, you have a bond like no other,” Caleb said. 

“We have both of those things. I thought, if we put all our energy toward something, who is gonna stop us? Who can stop us except us?”
