Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage The Elephant truly lived up to that billing at Reading and Leeds Festivals, completely packing out the Radio 1 / NME stage at both events and for many, providing one of the most ‘talked about’ sets of the weekend.
The band, whose last sold-out UK tour featured numerous venue upgrades, also appeared alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers in Belfast and Biffy Clyro in Glasgow as well as their storming Reading and Leeds appearances.
They also are making a name for themselves in the USA, with Trouble, the second single from their fourth studio album Tell Me I’m Pretty, topped the Alternative radio charts. They sit alongside the elite artists in radio format history - Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Green Day, U2 and Linkin Park - as the biggest airplay bands since the 1988 chart began and score the most Billboard Alternative Songs No. 1s since 2010.
Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, and drummer Jared Champion.
