Cage The Elephant 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.

But it’s onstage where Cage The Elephant truly go wild. 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!
