Cage The Elephant has shared a new track today, "House of Glass." The angular and anxious track teeters on a razor's edge - with new wave guitar and nervous confessions, and is a highlight from their forthcoming fifth studio album, Social Cues. The track is released today with a companion video by Lexington-based artist, Robert Beatty. Guitarist Brad Shultz spoke to Consequence of Sound about the "Origins" of the song. Social Cues is out on April 19th on RCA Records. The song is available as an instant grat along with the single, "Ready To Let Go" for those who pre-order the album HERE.
Cage The Elephant has also recently announced The Night Running Tour where they will be co-headlining with Beck, who is featured on the album track "Night Running." Spoon will open all dates as a special guest with additional support from Starcrawler, Sunflower Bean and Wild Belle in select cities. Full dates below. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com. Beck and Cage The Elephant have partnered up with PLUS1 and $1 from every ticket sold will be donated back into each city they are playing in, supporting local food security initiatives as they work towards ending hunger in their communities.

Cage The Elephant's first single, "Ready To Let Go," was released at the end of January with a music video directed by Matt Shultz. The single leaped to #3 at Alternative radio. "Cage The Elephant's new single 'Ready to Let Go' is off to a strong start at radio," said Billboard, "scoring the band its best Alternative Songs airplay chart debut in its near-decade career."
Social Cues was produced by John Hill (Santigold, Florence + The Machine, Portugal. The Man, tUnE-yArDs), recorded at Battle Tapes Recording, Blackbird Studio and Sound Emporium in Nashville and The Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles, and mixed by Tom Elmhirst and mastered by Randy Merrill in New York City.
Deeply inspired by punk music, brothers Matt and Brad Shultz began playing music in high-school with fellow students Jared Champion and Daniel Tichenor. Shortly after forming the band, they made the bold move to London to begin their career. Their self-titled debut album gained them international attention, catapulting them up the Billboard Alternative and Rock charts and achieving RIAA Platinum certification. Cage the Elephant has released three additional studio albums - 2011's Thank You, Happy Birthday, the Gold-certified
