After stomping into wider consciousness with their second album, January 2011’s Thank You, Happy Birthday Kentucky five-piece Cage The Elephant will be touring Australia this January on the back of their Big Day Out 2012 line=up.
Inspired by the likes of Pixies, The Shins, Mudhoney, Butthole Surfers and ’50s surf rock, their music is packed full of slinky guitars, explosive loud-quiet-loud moments, super-catchy anthems, trippy jams, ferocious, thrashing odes to staying true to yourself and Matt Shultz’s best letting-off-steam cries.
They’ve recently released a claymation new music video for their third single Aberdeen.
Tickets on sale for both dates at 12.00pm AEDST on Monday 28 November, 2011.
