Cage The Elephant

Thank You Happy Birthday LP

t's been a whirlwind for Cage the Elephant since the April 2009 release of their self-titled LP. In that time, they've been pounding the pavement, playing shows and festivals across the world. While fans were often whipped into a frenzy at their live gigs, that feeling was seconded only by the intense anticipation for a new album. Well, patient fans one and all, your wait is over as the band ready their sophomore LP, Thank You, Happy Birthday. No, thank YOU. The story goes that the band spent the last two years on the road accumulating "Eighty songs' worth of ideas" for the new record, somehow dwindling them down to the thirteen songs that make up the final tracklist. According to a press release, that process involved locking themselves in a cabin in their home state of Kentucky, where they "discovered old albums from The Pixies, Mudhoney, and Butthole Surfers and studied interviews with songwriting greats like Bob Dylan and John Lennon." Somehow we think whiskey was also included in their journey.' Chris Coplan / Consequence of Sound
