Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, guitarist Lincoln Parish and drummer Jared Champion. For the group, who originally hail from Bowling Green, K.Y., the aim is to always improve and evolve, ensuring that each subsequent release and tour represent a step forward. In that way, Melophobia is not so much about a fear of music but a fear of not pushing music to its potential. The album follows Thank You, Happy Birthday, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and has sold over 250,000 copies to date. The album’s single, “Shake Me Down,” spent six weeks at No. 1 on Alternative radio. The band has toured extensively, performing alongside Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Muse, Stone Temple Pilots and Silversun Pickups.
