The Kings of Leon have inked a deal with SESAC for representation. The band, which hails from Nashville, scored their first No. 1 album when their seventh studio album Walls entered the Billboard 200 chart last month. The album also hit the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart.

“Few rock bands have garnered a global following as extensive as Kings of Leon,” says John Josephson, SESAC’s Chairman/CEO. “The band’s musical influence, as both songwriters and performers, has spread from the United States to the U.K. and Australia and well beyond. SESAC is proud to welcome Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill, Jared Followill and Matthew Followill to our affiliate family.”

Best known for their singles “Use Somebody,” “Sex on Fire,” and “Radioactive,” the Kings have won three Grammy Awards, three NME Awards, two Brit Awards and one Juno Award and toured extensively around the world.

Kings of Leon’s affiliation is the latest in a string of prominent signings with Randy Newman, Robin Thicke, Green Day, Mariah Carey, Kesha, George Clinton and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielson recently joining the SESAC roster.
