Kings of Leon Pay Tribute to Nashville, Family and Gunshots to the Head in New Video
Kings of Leon go for simplicity in their new video for ‘Temple,’ the latest single (and best song) from their most recent album, last year’s ‘Mechanical Bull.’
The video takes on a home-video feeling, showing off the band’s hometown of Nashville. While the music-centric city doesn’t need a bunch of indie rockers to show off its great clubs, the Followills’ perspective here does give the town a personal stamp.
We not only get to see shots from some of the city’s greatest venues, we also get a glimpse of the band members’ everyday lives, which includes lots of little kids running around. But there’s also a pretty solid performance at the center of it all, with the Kings taking shelter from pigeons in an intimate club setting.
The group is currently on tour in the U.S. They’ll hit Europe in a few months for more dates in support of ‘Mechanical Bull.’
