Proud celebrate 10th Kings of Leon 10th anniversary with free photo exhibition

Kings of Leon

Since The Strokes' status quo (whose fourth album we're still awaiting), another previously-hyped rock band has gained award-winning and arena-playing worldwide status, in Kings of Leon. Such has their popularity become that the self-taught Nashville foursome now has a fanzine, stocked in all respectable bookshops!

10 years have passed since they started jamming in their dad/uncle's garage, and to celebrate an eventful decade (to say the least), Proud Camden is dedicating its new exhibition to them.

'Kings of Leon: 10 Year Reign' is a series of shots taken by emerging music photographer and friend and neighbour to the band, Jo McCaughey, who followed them on their 2004 European tour, and shows KOL in behind the scenes and intimate situations, sporting the trademark vintage look that made them so quirky and cool at the time. Since then, they've swapped second-hand for designer clothing and ditched facial hair for a more boho chic swag, but this exhibition is still the opportunity to reminisce and revel into truly eye-catching rock star iconography.

'Kings of Leon: 10 Year Reign' opens on October 22nd, until December 6th, and is free of charge.
