Rockers at festival for film debut.

Byline: Amanda MacMillan

ROCKERS Kings Of Leon are heading to Edinburgh for the European film premiere of their life story.

Talihina Sky will round off the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 25.

The movie debut is the biggest one-night-only satellite screening event in the UK.

There will also be a live question-and-answer session with the band, beamed to 150 cinemas nationwide.

The film charts the tale of the American rock giants, from their beginnings in the Deep South, and details how they cope with the rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

It features interviews with Caleb, Nathan, Jared and Matthew Followill plus footage of other family members and influential figures in the band's career.

It has already received critical acclaim after its screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

MTV described it as "one of the most compelling music documentaries you'll see".

The film premiere takes place the night before the band are due to play to a sell-out audience at Murrayfield with special guests White Lies, Zac Brown Band and The Walkmen.

Since exploding on to the music scene in Nashville in 2003, Kings Of Leon have released five albums and topped the charts globally, selling more than 13million records.

Famous for songs such as The Bucket, Molly's Chambers and Sex On Fire, the band have also picked up four Grammy Awards and two Brits.

Their fifth album, Come Around Sundown, was released in October last year and was No.1 in the UK.
