This week’s hot ticket is to see Nashville’s Kings of Leon at the Gorge Amphitheatre, a band that in the last few years has grown from club-headlining indie darlings to one of the hottest bands on the planet.

The Kings are Friday’s GO cover story, so pick up the paper tomorrow to read what they have to say about returning to the Gorge and what they learned from Pearl Jam. Meanwhile, check out these clips I recorded during a May conference call brothers Caleb and Jared Followill held with rock writers from across the country. Click the links to hear …

… Caleb talk about the up and potential down side of getting so big.

… Caleb and Jared (the second, less twangy voice) talk about the new album they have in the can and how many fresh cuts fans can expect on tour.

… Caleb going into more detail regarding the new album’s aesthetic. Jared: “Pitchfork is gonna loooove it.”

    Don’t listen to a lot of rock radio, eh?
