    Ya I'm a fan , but 2nd album is class ! Prefer that over the 1st
  • I'm a big fan of Cage! Saw them open up for STP when their first album came out, been hooked ever since. The band puts on a great performance and the lead singer is crazy on stage! I like both of their albums, but I agree the second album was better. You can hear the Pixies influence! They have their own unique sound that stands out from most of the mainstream bands today. I'm psyched for their next album!
  • Great band, I hope they can make the jump to headlining arenas/amphitheaters with their third album. They're one of the few super talented successful young rock bands.

    Great band!

    Fill the gap between then and now in my opinion.
    Lot of energy on stage. Freaking awesome live...

    Have a look at this video I shot of Aberdeen two years ago:

    I just discovered these guys within the last couple of weeks. What a band. I started with their first album which is amazing and just got the other two. Loving the 2nd one right now, the 3rd is growing on me. I bet they are great live. Check them out!

    Saw them at Firefly festival with a HUGE audience, WAY bigger than they expected (like main stage big, but not on the main stage), but it didn't faze them. They came out and crushed it like rock stars.

    I was about 15th row dead center for that show! Matt surfed out during Sabertooth tiger about 8 feet to my right, it was such a great set. I came out of there drenched in sweat. There were so many crowdsurfers.... But yes, they did kill it.

    I was about half way back (15 thousand people in front of me and just as many behind) and they still stomped on it.

    I have no desire to see the Keys in an arena again. I just want to see Cage play their own show. Saw them open for Muse last year and that was like the 4th time seeing them I believe? Maybe third but I can't remember. They are such an awesome live show.

    The Keys need to stop playing arenas.... They just don't sound good in that big of space. I want them to play smaller venues and they will rock it.

    I am going to see them for the first time in about 2 weeks. Can't wait. And my daughter actually likes them too so she is coming with a friend. I think she is finally out of the one direction phase :)

    That's awesome! I had no idea that the crowd was that big! Now it makes more sense as to why the pit was so hectic.

    I missed out on seeing the Black Keys at Firefly on 2012. I saw them at Global Citizen Festival that same year, but it was a short set. I'm mostly going for Cage and because a friend of mine actually asked me to go!

    haha Yes middle East politics and the upcoming Presidential Election!
    My friend asked me to go with her so I'm not sure of the plan, but I'll let you know!
    Where are your tickets? I don't think we got any yet... I'm envisioning upper deck tickets but would love the floor if they are still available (haven't checked lol).

    I saw them open for STP a few years back and they were pretty awesome, real high energy show. Have tix to see them for a Lollapalooza aftershow in a couple weeks, should be interesting... small venue, show doesnt start till 11, and theres an opener so im guessing Cage wont even come on til after midnight

    Caught them at Sasquatch, they were fantastic. A ton of energy and Matthew did a ton of stage diving. The new stuff sounded great, even better than on album.

    Back Against the Wall is my favorite song by them.

    Just saw them at the Pemberton festival!
    It was a great show he stage dove into the crowd and we helped him crowd surf
    for five minutes or so.(5 real minutes!)

    Great energy, I also saw them open for the Black Keys and they were really good then too.

    Check them out if you can. :)

    Holy SH#($T. Just got back from Cage the Elephant show in CT tonight. I have had the pleasure of seeing a ton of great bands over the years but this has to be one of the very top tier of shows i have seen. Absolutely AMAZING live. Tons of energy, they sounded great. They only played about 15 songs but now I know why, I am drained I cant image how they are feeling seeing the energy they bring to the stage. Go see these guys NOW!!!

    I saw that on social media! Starting the recording process, correct? I thought melophobia was a great progression to a newer sound while still staying true. I hope they can continue that, but I will probably love anything lol
