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 anddirected by singer Matt Shultz – WATCH HEREvia 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.
