Video: Trailer for new documentary “Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon" debuts
Grammy-winning multiplatinum rockers Kings of Leon, who have Oklahoma ties, have unveiled the trailer for their new rock documentary “Talihina Sky: The Story of the Kings of Leon,” which has been selected for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
Stephen C. Mitchell’s rock doc will be shown as a special work-in-progress screening during the 10th annual festival, set for April 20 to May 1 in lower Manhattan.
The title of the film is taken from a hidden track on the family band’s 2003 debut album, “Youth and Young Manhood,” which in turn in taken from an Oklahoma town whose welcome sign is glimpsed in the trailer.
The film centers on the Followill boys’ – brothers Nathan (drums, vocals), Caleb (vocals, guitar) and Jared (bass) and first cousin Matthew Followill (lead guitar) – struggles to reconcile their strict religious upbringing with their rock ‘n’ roll career and lifestyle.
The brothers spent most of their childhood in the ’80s and ’90s crisscrossing the Bible Belt between Memphis and Oklahoma City, riding in a purple ’88 Olds with their traveling Pentecostal minister dad, Leon, and their mother, Betty-Ann, in the ’80s and ’90s. Caleb and Jared were both born in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., while Nathan and Matthew were born in Oklahoma City. The band, which is playing Friday at Tulsa’s BOK Center, is now based in Tennessee.
