Kings Of Leon Dominate UK Charts

Post by Sykesy on Tue Sep 30, 2008 4:46 pm

The Kings Of Leon made an impressive debut at number 1 on the U.K. Album Chart this week with their fourth album "Only By The Night" and also managed to stay on top of the U.K. Singles Chart for a third week in a row with their hit single "Sex On Fire".

"Only By The Night" debuted in the U.K. with sales of 220,000 copies.


The band’s first two albums, "Youth And Young Manhood" and "Aha Shake Heartbreak", both only peaked at number 3. It wasn’t until April of 2007 that the band received their first number 1 in the U.K. with "Because Of The Times", which only sold 70,000 in its first week.

In securing the number 1 spot this week, the band beat out acts such as Rihanna and the Pussycat Dolls.

The Kings Of Leon consists of brothers Nathan Followill, Caleb Followill, and Jared Followill as well as cousin Matthew Followill.
