What The Press Is Saying…

“Cage the Elephant: Slide guitars provide sizzle and grease on the Kentucky quintet’s sassy, sneering, uncomplicated blues rock.” -USA Today

Band That Best Met Pre[SXSW] Conference Hype/Hope: Cage the Elephant. “…is just a pretty awesome rock band from Kentucky. …this band has more commercial potential than any act I saw” -Billboard

“Cage the Elephant, a bunch of crazy young Kentucky hooligans who thoroughly entertained me at 2007’s Lollapalooza with their outsized stage antics (crowd-terrorizing, amp-jumping, accidental vomiting) and shambolic, Southern-fried riffs — like if the Kings of Leon loved Iggy Pop and didn’t care about their hair.”

“For some reason crowd-surfing was especially viral this year. On Friday Matt Shultz of Cage the Elephant, a young Kentucky rock band just back from a quick coronation in the English press, made it all the way out to the back of the crowd, aloft on his hands.” -New York Times

“Cage the Elephant… play hip-hop-infused blues rock (Kid Rock meets the White Stripes) and made their mark thanks to frontman Matt Shultz, a rock star-in-the-making.”

“’Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked’ is an earworm to the highest degree.” -Riverfront Times (St. Louis, MO)

“If Kid Rock and Jack White spent a week in the studio…it would sound exactly like this rootsy/rap-y radio hit.” 3 Stars -Rolling Stone

“It’s going to be inescapable this summer…”

“With an undeniable single and an easy going atmosphere, Cage the Elephant’s debut is the ideal soundtrack for upcoming summer barbeques.” -Billboard
