TO BE RELEASED ON DVD, BLU RAY AND ITUNES NOVEMBER 1
RCA Records is excited to announce the release of Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon on November 1, 2011. The release will be available on both standard DVD and Blu Ray as well as digitally via iTunes. The DVD and Blu Ray editions will come with 30 minutes of bonus features including additional scenes not included in the film, two commentaries from the band and filmmakers as well as home-movie footage. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21, garnered huge praise and was acquired by Showtime, premiering on the network on August 21.
When three teenaged brothers and their cousin rebelled against their strict, religious Southern upbringing to form Kings of Leon, their humble backstory garnered almost as much attention as their music. Many questioned if they were really related and if rumors of their father being a Pentecostal preacher were true. Since then, the band has achieved worldwide, Grammy® Award-winning success and Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon lies to rest the mystery and myths as it details the rise to fame from their bible belt beginnings.
