You can’t talk about music in this century without mentioning Cage the Elephant. They are the last of the great bands — or perhaps, based on new album Unpeeled, the first of the great new ones. They trace their nervy, seditious lineage from that same uncompromising place that gave us Between the Buttons-era Stones, the Pixies, the Stone Roses, the Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop.
Hailing from Bowling Green, Kentucky, Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, drummer Jared Champion, bassist Daniel Tichenor, lead guitarist Nick Bockrath and Matthan Minster on keyboard and backing vocals. Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage The Elephant have sold out several headlining runs including a summer 2016 arena tour and recent sold out UK and European tour. Additionally, Cage The Elephant’s self-titled debut album was recently certified RIAA platinum.
Cage the Elephant’s purity of purpose and impulse to communicate what can only be felt beat as steadily in their hearts as they did for the Velvet Underground on the gritty streets of New York in the mid-1960s.
“I definitely believe that music is spiritual, and I think that its most interesting characteristic is in its ability to express what’s unseen. To tell the truth, I believe in the power of honesty, no matter how uncomfortable it might be. It’s a universal strength that overpowers just about anything. Truth always comes out; it just depends on how long it takes,” says Matt.
