J School: Kings of New Media

-Kings of Leon have been busy since releasing their last album, Only By The Night. After tons of success overseas, the band has been trying to reach a larger audience here at home. For such a quintessentially American band, Kings of Leon have had surprisingly little success here, despite their superstar status in the UK. Europeans love Western movies, so its not hard to understand their love for a band that is essentially the musical equivalent.
-KOL have also been doing their part to kill print media once and for all. This months Spin Magazine features the band on the cover, and a free digital version has been released online. This new format is green, convenient, and features all of the same content, including the most informative Kings interview to date.
