Cage The Elephant has already started to work on material for the band’s fourth album, according to a new interview with Radio.com. The group’s third studio effort, Melophobia, only arrived six months ago, but guitarist Brad Shultz said, “I always come out of the studio and I feel empty, I feel almost paranoid that I’ll never write another song. This is the first time I’ve came out of the studio and was just so inspired from the steps that we took forward on this record that I just continued to write.”
- Singer Matt Shultz, meanwhile, said that Melophobia was the first album on which the band was open to trying new things. He explained, “On this record, we really found our own voice and it became more about allowing our emotions or some kind of story to shape a song rather than borrowing from the people we admired.”
- Both of the Shultz brothers are writing songs and recording demos on their mobile phones, although they don’t expect to hit the studio until the fall.
- Melophobia came out last October and features the Modern Rock Top Five hit “Come A Little Closer.” The set’s latest single is “Take It Or Leave It.”
- The band is currently on a headlining tour that stops on Friday (May 2nd) in Raleigh, North Carolina and winds down on May 23rd at Washington’sSasquatch! Music Festival.
