Cage the Elephant is an indie rock band known for tracks like "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" and "Shake Me Down," which you can listen to down below. They released their first album in 2008 which had a few successful radio singles, generating a massive following in both the US & UK. Last year Cage the Elephant toured alongside indie rock bands–Foals & Silversun Pickups.
In what seems to be an album announcement, Cage the Elephant have taken to Twitter posting about a possible release named "Unpeeled." If you're as excited as we are, then keep reading for information about the band's history.
Cage the Elephant's "Unpeeled"
Cage the Elephant have been fairly quiet since the release of Tell Me I'm Pretty in 2015. They've been playing at festivals and releasing music videos to songs from the fourth album, that is until now.
A fun(ish) fact: The band has tweeted the following:
It looks imminent that we'll get new music from the band in a release called "Unpeeled." Could it be a new album? Seems like it, let's have a look at some of their past work!
The First Album: Cage the Elephant
Their self-titled first album, Cage the Elephant, was influenced by classic rock, funk, and blues. When performing the singles live, the band became well-known for their hugely energetic shows.
The Second Album: Thank You, Happy Birthday
In 2011, they released their second album–Thank You, Happy Birthday. This album had a slightly different sound as it was heavily influenced by punk rock. They drew inspiration from bands such as the Pixies and Nirvana.
Fun(ner) fact: this album was meant to be released in 2009 under the name Computer Says Move.
Melophobia, the bands' third album, was distinctly their own, featuring (for the first time) a distinctly Cage the Elephant sound. This won them a Grammy Award nomination in 2015 for Best Alternative Music Album. It was the last album to feature lead guitarist Lincoln Parish who left to attain a producing career.
The band's third album seemed to send people in a new direction: longtime producer Jay Joyce, who had worked on all the previous albums, was no longer involved.
