Frontman Caleb Followill of KOL will appear as a guest judge tonight on the FOOD Network's Iron Chef America. Although the episode was taped over a year ago, it is being aired tonight to coincide with their latest album release. Check local listings for times.
In other television news, Kings of Leon will also be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this week (10/23/10). Emma Stone from Easy A is hosting and the Kings will return for their second appearance on the show.
In general band news, Caleb Followill and girlfriend of two years, model Lily Aldridge were recently engaged and Rolling Stone's latest issue confirms that lead guitarist Matthew Followill married long time girlfriend Johanna Bennet, last November as well. Which means that bassist Jared is the only one still on the market.
The band has also been nominated for two European Music Awards and will perform at the ceremony November 7, 2010 in Madrid. You can vote up to a hundred times a day until November 4, so get out there and support your band. MTV is already advertising this like crazy and there's no doubt if you miss it, they will re-rerun it a thousand times.
Last, but certainly most important is the much anticpated release of Come Around Sundown, the bands fifth studio album. It's being released this Tuesday, October 18 in the United States but is still available for pre-order on iTunes, which comes with an exclusive download of the bands first single, Radioactive.
For more info on the new album check out Closer to KOL for a great collection of Come Around Sundown Interviews or as always, the offical site.
