Come Friday, 4th October, US five-piece Cage The Elephant will be unleashing their third studio album on the world, Melophobia. The album is available for pre-order now through any respectable digital retailer, with the band unveiling the tracklisting, giving us something of a heads up as to what we can expect.
That said, we can expect a respectable 10-tracker from the band, who’ve previously teased fans with live performances of album opening track, Spiderhead. We can also see that the band have done some outsourcing for this particular record, bringing The Kills vocalist Alison Mosshart in for a guest feature on the track It’s Just Forever.
To further our grasp on the album, we also know that the band teamed up with long-term producer Jay Joyce who manned the control boards for both previous releases from ‘The Elephant. The outfit had their work cut out for them following up 2011’s Thank You Happy Birthday which received praise from all the right people, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, LA Times, USA Today, and Entertainment Weekly, who all labeled the release “one of the best rock albums of the year.”
You can take a squizz at the Melophobia tracklist and album artwork below.
