Cage The Elephant Australian Tour 2012 – Big Day Out 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on November 21, 2011

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.
