Cage The Elephant

Tell Me I'm Pretty


With ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ Cage the Elephant are pushing the advances they 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.

“With this record, we wanted to be more transparent,” says lead singer Matt Shultz. “We wanted to capture the sentiment of each song, and whatever emotional response it provoked, to be really honest to that.” The results are the band’s most forceful and focused songs yet. They recorded most of the songs on the first take, capturing the band’s raw and frenetic onstage energy.

‘Melophobia’ took the band to new heights, delivering two Number One singles on the Alternative charts (‘Come a Little Closer’ and ‘Cigarette Daydreams’), with Rolling Stone heralding “Kentucky's Cage the Elephant warp Sixties garage rock, Seventies punk and Eighties alt-rock into excellently weird new shapes”. Their 2011 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.
