Kings Of Leon - Because Of The Times (2007)
Kings of Leon is a rock band made up of three brothers and their first cousin. Their influences include Southern rock, garage rock, hard rock, country and blues.
In March 2006, it was announced by NME that Kings of Leon were back in the studio, working on their third album. Because of the Times debuted at #1 in the UK and Ireland and entered the US charts at #25, selling approximately 70,000 copies in its first week of release. The album was preceded by the single "On Call", which became a hit in Britain. The album showed a clear evolution from the band's previous work, as the band's trademark dirty, southern-fried swagger was replaced with a more mature, polished sound. This, however, did not stop the album from becoming arguably the band's most successful commercial and critical release. Other singles from the album were "Fans" and "Charmer." The album was produced by Angelo Petraglia and Ethan Johns.
