Cage the Elephant


Cage the Elephant released a haunting and beautiful video for "Cigarette Daydreams," one of the most beloved songs on their new album, Melophobia. Acclaimed director Mark Pellington worked closely with Matt Shultz on the project, and together they created a moving portrait of the song's true meaning featuring a very special guest. Mark Pellington is best known for his work with the likes of Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, U2 and acclaimed films, including Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies.

Additionally, Cage the Elephant, arguably one of the best live bands around today, have now captured their blistering live show in the form of their upcoming release- The Live EP. The 5-track collection was recorded at the band's concert at The Ogden Theater in Denver, CO on May 17th. It will be released digitally on October 7th 2014 via RCA Records. The Live EP features live recordings of the bands hit single "Shake Me Down," and tracks from their critically-acclaimed third album Melophobia: "Cigarette Daydreams," "Spiderhead," "Telescope," and the No. 1 alternative hit "Come A Little Closer." They have had a huge summer playing almost every major US festival including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly and Lollapalooza, always coming out the other side as one of the must-see acts at the festival. Cage the Elephant is Matt Shultz (vocals), Brad Shultz (guitar), Daniel Tichenor (Bass) and Jared Champion (drums).

"With Skrillex on guitar and Cage the Elephant's Matt Shultz on vocals? You'd have to see it live at Bonnaroo, or not see it at all."
