Cage The Elephant Trample Through Coachella, Release Self-Titled Album on Jive Records

Catch The Band's Sizzling Performance
at Bamboozle on May 2!

“…made their mark [at Coachella] thanks to frontman Matt Shultz, a rock star-in-the-making”

“…crowd-terrorizing, amp-jumping, accidental vomiting and shambolc, Southern-fried riffs – like if the Kings of Leon loved Iggy Pop and didn’t care about their hair”
- Entertainment Weekly

After thrilling audiences at Coachella, Cage The Elephant continue to take their blistering live show cross-country with headlining club dates, plus stops at Bamboozle, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and All Points West.  The band’s first single, “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” has been one of the most added tracks at Rock & Alternative radio over the past month, and the song’s video has been on rotation at MTV2 Subterranean, MTVu, and Fuse.  If you haven't seen it yet, check out the video here.  The quintet’s self-titled debut hits stores today on Jive Records.

Cage The Elephant are Bowling Green, Kentucky natives Matt Shultz (vocals), his brother Brad (guitar) and their friends Daniel Tichenor (bass), Lincoln Parish (guitar) and Jared Champion (drums).
