It’s certain that Kings of Leon is at the peak of their career as of the moment. They have been all over the place for the past 6 months. They’ve won Brits for International Album and International Group Artist, their album is currently the #1 album in the UK, and of course, their singles are still climbing up the charts. The sad part is they’re popular everywhere except their home country. Since releasing “Only By The Night”, Kings of Leon has cemented themselves as one of the most respected foreign bands in Europe/Australia. Hopefully, Kings of Leon can have their share of success in the US in the near future.
“Revelry” is the third single off from “Only By The Night” and it features a much softer side of Kings of Leon. It’s effervescently produced and has the qualities of a classic rock song. It’s softness doesn’t altercate with their usual rock sound. Lead singer Caleb Followill’s vocals were still convincing with his “woo hoo hoo” adlib that elevates the softness yet brusque feeling of the song. Although it’s a softer side of Kings of Leon, it lacks the hype of their previous top 5 hits “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” but who cares, this song totally is in for another ride in the charts soon.
NEWS: Kings of Leon already planned an Autumn release of their fifth studio album.
