By 2002, Nathan and Caleb had received interest from a number of music labels and eventually signed with RCA Records, which initially insisted on putting a band together for the two of them.
After the release of Only by the Night in September 2008 the band achieved chart success in the United States.
The seventh studio album, WALLS, was released on October 14, 2016.
The three Followill brothers (Matthew is their cousin) grew up in Oklahoma and Tennessee with their father, Ivan Leon Followill, a United Pentecostal Church preacher, and their mother, Betty-Ann.
The EP also contains the song "Wicker Chair", while a track called "Andrea" was discarded before its release.
The Followills' debut album, Youth and Young Manhood, was released in the UK in July 2003 and in the United States later that August.
Except for a five-year period when they settled in Jackson, Tennessee, the Followills' childhoods were spent driving through the southern United States in a purple 1988 Oldsmobile, camping for a week or two wherever Ivan was scheduled to preach.
