Jared Followill + Nick Brown = Smoke & Jackal
Kings of Leon are FM radio mainstays. For a while there, you couldn’t shake “Sex on Fire.” Their popularity surged and next thing you knew, the southerners were selling out larger venues. It didn’t help that Caleb Followill’s dependancy has taken a stronghold over his life and the group. KOL has been on hiatus since late last year. Bassist Justin Followill decided that time is precious and teamed up with Nick Brown from Mona to create Smoke & Jackal. The first single “No Tell” is a tender ballad that shows promise for a future full length. Look out for EP1 October 16.
