Cage the Elephant, who release their new album ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ through Columbia Records on 18th December, have confirmed a string of European shows in February. The gigs will be the bands’ first since playing with Foals at Alexandra Palace in Feb 2014. The Times raved about those shows, reporting, “charismatic singer Matt Shultz ended stripped to the waist, upside down in the crowd, feet flailing above the heads around him”. Cage The Elephant recently performed an equally exhilarating set during a secret show at CMJ.
‘Tell Me I’m Pretty ‘was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys & The Arcs, mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Florence + the Machine) and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN, near the group’s hometown of Bowling Green, KY.
