Cage the Elephant were formed in Kentucky by three high school friends; Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz and Jared Champion, along with two other friends Lincoln Parish and Daniel Tichenor. Before rocking with Cage, they played music in a band under the moniker Perfect Confusion which were disbanded when they left.
In 2007, they got slots at major music festivals, South by Southwest, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. After signing a deal with Relentless Records and moving to London, they started working on their debut album and released it as a self-titled effort in 2008. They received favorable review from music critics and their single "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" peaked at No. 32 on U.K. Singles chart.
Beside dethroning Taylor Swift from the penthouse of the albums chart, Cake and Cage the Elephant also break record previously held by her in scoring the lowest-selling chart topper.READ MORE
