Kings of Leon Gear and Setup: D'Addario Guitar Strings

Published: Tue April 19, 2011  News Feed

Tennesse born rockers Kings of Leon are the latest band to be signed as an endorsee by string giants and Dolphin Music favourite, D'Addario. They love the strings for their reliability and can rock night after night, city after city and country after country!

Probably one of the UK's favourite rock bands of the past decade, Kings of Leon rose to their fame with thanks to hit singles such as The Bucket, Sex on Fire and On Call, winning them two Brit Awards in 2008, a Grammy Award and a total of 9 Top 40 singles, with all three of the band's albums saw top 5 success in the official UK album chart, and their 3rd album 'Because of the Times' reaching the number one spot.

They've toured almost everyone of the UK and Europe's top festivals over the past 5 years; Glastonbury in 2008, V Festival Reading & Leeds; Rock Werchter, Oxegen, T in the Park, Gurtenfestival, Open'er Festival, Sasquatch, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits in 2009. Though Reading Festival may not have been their best moment, with frontman Caleb Followill preaching a crowd-displeasing "I thought this was supposed to be the loudest crowd in the world? We know you're sick of Kings of Leon, so for all those who don't give a **** about us, I understand...we're the goddamn Kings of Leon" rockstar rage....then going on to smash up their guitars on stage.

This year you can look forward to Kings of Leon's 87 minute film, 'Talihina Sky', documenting the band's live shows which will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, a UK stadium tour including dates at Conventry, Manchester, Hyde Park and once again hitting the UK festival scene with Isle of Wight this June.

D'aAddario's artist relations manager, Frank Aresti says,

"Bringing Kings of Leon on board is a testament to the quality and longevity of D'Addario strings...these guys rock night after night, city after city, country after country and we're stoked to be along for the ride."
