Social Cues is released April 19th on Columbia Records. The song is available as an instant grat along with the single, “Ready To Let Go” for those who pre-order the album HERE.
Cage The Elephant have also recently announced The Night Running US Tour where they will be co-headlining with Beck, who is featured on the album track “Night Running.” Spoon will open all dates as a special guest with additional support from Starcrawler, Sunflower Bean and Wild Belle in select cities.

Deeply inspired by punk music, brothers Matt and Brad Shultz began playing music in high-school with fellow students Jared Champion and Daniel Tichenor.

At radio, Cage The Elephant holds the record for the most #1 Alternative songs of any artist this decade. Cage The Elephant have had 7 Billboard #1 singles with 11 singles landing in the Billboard Top 10 and digitally have a combined 1.5 billion streams worldwide.
