Cage The Elephant Premieres Music Video For “Cold Cold Cold”

PREMIERES MUSIC VIDEO FOR “COLD COLD COLD” VIA ROLLING STONE

PERFORM “COLD COLD COLD” ON THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT

TELL ME I’M PRETTY GARNERS GRAMMY NOMINATION FOR BEST ROCK ALBUM

UK TOUR SOLD OUT

January 12, 2017– Following their 2017 GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album for their fourth studio album, Tell Me I’m Pretty, Cage The Elephant have unveiled a new music video written and directed by singer Matt Shultz – CLICK HERE to watch “Cold Cold Cold” via Rolling Stone, who praised the video as “[tapping] into the paranoia of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.” On the inspiration for the video, Matt said, “I think we’re all very prone to subscribe to a safe, surface level pursuit of happiness, keeping our adversities out of sight out of mind, in a way. We try to fix ourselves to fit into the social norm, and it is so easy to forget that in one way or another, the broken hearted are the beautiful ones.”

Cage The Elephant performed “Cold Cold Cold” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week for the single’s TV debut –CLICK HERE to watch the band’s dynamic performance, with Matt Shultz leaping from Stephen Colbert’s desk mid-song while guitarist Brad Shultz ended the performance by kissing Colbert on the lips. Cage The Elephant will also live stream their sold out show from London’s Brixton Academy on January 20th.

Cage The Elephant released their fourth studio album Tell Me I’m Pretty in December 2015 via RCA Records. The album was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys (Lana Del Rey, Ray LaMontagne, Dr. John, The Pretenders). Tell Me I’m Pretty’s two singles, “Mess Around” and “Trouble,” both topped the Alternative charts for a total of seven #1 Alternative songs. Cage The Elephant sit with the most elite artists in radio format history – Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Green Day and U2 – as the biggest airplay bands since the 1988 chart origin, with more #1 Alternative songs than any other artist this decade. Additionally, Cage The Elephant’s self-titled debut album was recently certified RIAA platinum.

CLICK HERE to watch the video for “Trouble” directed by singer Matt Shultz, and CLICK HERE to watch the band perform it live at the legendary Electric Lady Studios.

Tell Me I’m Pretty pushes the advances the band made with their last record – 2013’s Melophobia, which was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album – while also drawing from the sounds that initially inspired them to start making music. The New York Times called the album “a daring, deliberate shift for Cage The Elephant,” while Rolling Stone declared it “their best yet.”

Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage The Elephant has toured extensively, selling out several headlining runs including a summer 2016 arena tour and multiple dates on their forthcoming UK tour, and performing alongside The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Muse and Queens of the Stone Age. The band recently performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden,  The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Conan.

Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, and drummer Jared Champion.
