CAGE THE ELEPHANT: Big Day Out sideshows announced

 

CAGE THE ELEPHANT

SYDNEY & MELBOURNE BIG DAY OUT SIDE SHOWS ANNOUNCED!

 

Open the gates and stand clear – BIG DAY OUT 2012 side shows are about to unleash CAGE THE ELEPHANT.

 

“An extreme live experience … get there early, get close, and be prepared for an in-your-face show.” (Indie Shuffle, March 2011)

 

The Kentucky five-piece – singer Matt Shultz, guitarists Brad Shultz and Lincoln Parish, bassist Daniel Tichenor and drummer Jared Champion – stomped into wider consciousness with their second album, January 2011’s Thank You, Happy Birthday, which debuted at #2 in the US. Written in an isolated Kentucky cabin and inspired by the likes of The Pixies, The Shins, Mudhoney, Butthole Surfers and ’50s surf rock, it’s packed full of slinky guitars, explosive loud-quiet-loud moments, super-catchy anthems, trippy jams, ferocious, thrashing odes to staying true to yourself and Matt Shultz’s best letting-off-steam cries.

 

However, it’s onstage where CAGE THE ELEPHANT truly go wild. Live, said the Baltimore Sun, the band’s singles are “twice as scorching as the album versions”. “This is a band that just wants to have fun,” says influential Los Angeles radio station KROQ. Did we mention Matt Shultz is more often than not found surfing the hands of the audience or singing from the pit … all while wearing a frock?

 

CAGE THE ELEPHANT quite simply blew away expectations. Matthew Schultz throws his entire body into performing, and wails like Cobain with a twang … he went head first into the waves of outstretched arms … the music is sold by the band's boundless energy. People were losing their minds.” (Time Out Chicago, August 2011)

 

Are you brave enough to catch what CAGE THE ELEPHANT are going to throw at you? If so, get close and be prepared for an in-your-face sonic assault at these official BIG DAY OUT side shows!

 

Tickets on sale for both dates at 12.00pm AEDST on Monday 28 November, 2011.
