It was just announced that the band will be playing at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles on December 12th and performing at Hangout Music Festival in May 2016. The band will also headline 107.7 The End’s Deck the Hall Ball in Seattle on December 8th and open for Metallica in San Francisco at AT&T Park on February 6th on the eve of Super Bowl 50.
Tell Me I’m Pretty was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys & The Arcs (Lana Del Rey, Ray LaMontagne, The Black Keys, The Arcs). Singer Matt Shultz said, “Working with Dan was the perfect balance to our approach. The end result was…a great experience that really brought on a lot of growth.” The album was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Florence + the Machine) and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN, near the band’s home town of Bowling Green, KY. Rolling Stone said, “Tell Me I’m Pretty reflects everything from psychedelic bubblegum pop to, not coincidentally, the spare tautness of the Black Keys.”
Cage the Elephant’s Grammy-nominated 2013 album Melophobia took the band to new heights, spinning off two Number One singles on the Alternative charts, “Come a Little Closer” and “Cigarette Daydreams,” with Rolling Stone describing the album as, “Kentucky’s Cage the Elephant warp Sixties garage rock, Seventies punk and Eighties alt-rock into excellently weird new shapes;” while their 2011 sophomore album Thank You Happy Birthday debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was praised as “one of the best rock albums of the year.” Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage the Elephant has toured extensively, selling out several headlining runs and performing alongside the likes of The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Muse and Queens of the Stone Age.
