Kings Of Leon Stomps Their Foot On U.K Charts....
It looks like Kings Of Leon are back in a huge way with the release of "Come Around Sundown". According to Billboard, the band sold an astonishing 183,000+ copies of their new one, it recorded the biggest first-week sale of any artist album this year, and the 49,000 of those that were digital represented the biggest first-week digital sales in U.K. chart history.
In other KOL news, while speaking to MTV front man Caleb said that "they never planned for "Radioactive" to be a single".
"I didn't think it would be a single, let alone the first one. I mean, the vocal, I mess up on the first verse, I mess up on the second verse, I mean, my voice is off, so I really didn't think the label would want that as a single, but they wanted it first," he explained.
"I don't know, I think at this point, we could do something with me tapping my foot and singing into a can and [critics] would be like, 'Oh, it's so anthemic', or, 'Oh, it's so stadium-friendly'."
