Unpeeled Features Twenty-one Tracks with Eighteen Curated Songs from their Past Four Albums, and Three Remixed Versions of Preexisting Tracks

Cage the Elephant is going to release a new album titled Unpeeled on July 28 via RCA Records.

The band stripped down to an acoustic format for a recent performance at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, as well as within venues in Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Knoxville. Cage the Elephant was joined by a string quartet to provide depth and layers to their original tracks. Frontman for Cage the Elephant Matt Shultz shares his point of view on Unpeeled.


“Many times you’re adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don’t realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song.” – Matt Shultz

They plan to have another Unpeeled concert in London on July 10 at Union Chapel. Along with that show, Cage the Elephant is hitting the music festival scene hard this summer and fall.

Experience their live festival performances in the United States this year LouFest, Forecastle Festival, Lollapalooza, and Osheaga Music & Arts.
