Cage the Elephant at UIC Pavilion

June 7, 2016
On The Radar

It only seems like yesterday when Cage the Elephant were starting to make a ruckus in rock music. They gained notoriety when their single “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” was used in the opening credits of the 2009 video game Borderlands. From there they’ve been climbing the ranks of the success and are finally getting the adulation they deserve. Their third album, Melophobia, reached no. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at no. 3 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums. “Come a Little Closer,” the lead single from the album, gave the band their fourth number one hit on the charts. They returned last year with their fourth album Tell Me I’m Pretty, produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auberbach. Aside from their rock and psychadelic infused songs, the band also became known fortheir wild live performances, which often feature frontman Matt Shultz leaping from frightening heights. Get a glimpse of Shultz stage diving when Cage the Elephant plays UIC Pavilion on June 7th.
