Kings of Leon Offshoot Releasing Debut EP

(Gibson) Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill has a new spin-off band, currently known as Smoke and Jackal.

"I knew that I would go a little bit stir-crazy just not doing anything and not having any artistic outlets," he tells Rolling Stone. With fellow Nashville resident Nick Brown, singer and guitarist of the rock group Mona; Followill's outlet has arrived in the form of a new band.

The duo will release their debut, EP1, a six-song collection, on October 16. According to Followill, the project was anything but premeditated.

"It was super spur-of-the-moment," he says. The two friends' original intention, he says, was to record one song and "put it up on YouTube or something stupid like that for people to see. [Nick] sings amazing and I sing horribly, so we figured we could just go down there and try it one night." more on this story
