Cage the Elephant Announce New Album and Tour with Young the Giant

Cage the Elephant is officially dropping their next album later this spring and will head out on tour in the summer.

Neon Pill is shaping up to be the band’s most vulnerable album to date. The band recorded the project after a series of traumatic, life-altering events involving the deaths of several loved ones, including members Matthew and Brad Shult’s father, as well as Matthew’s mental health breakdown.

“To me, Neon Pill is the first record where we were consistently uninfluenced, and I mean that in a positive way,” Matthew said in a statement. “Everything is undoubtedly expressed through having settled into finding our own voice. We’ve always drawn inspiration from artists we love, and at times we’ve even emulated some of them to a certain degree. With this album, having gone through so much, life had almost forced us into becoming more and more comfortable with ourselves. We weren’t reaching for much outside of the pure experience of self-expression, and simultaneously not necessarily settling either. We just found a uniqueness in simply existing.”

Neon Pill will drop May 17. Shortly after that, the band will head out on an extensive North American tour beginning in June with supporting act Young the Giant. (Milennial dads are freaking out right now.)

Ahead of the album’s release, the band has dropped two new singles, “Neon Pill” and “Out Loud.”
