Doug Elfman of the Las Vegas Review Journal spoke with Cage the Elephant singer Matt Shultz about the music scene that has broken out of late in their hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky, such at Sleeper Agent. “It’s really cool here,” he said. “It seems like every couple of weeks, there’s a new band that’s amazing. It’s not just Bowling Green. It’s the area. There’s not a lot to do in Bowling Green. It’s definitely one of those towns where you have to entertain yourself, so a lot of kids are doing stuff like that.”

Spin.com asked Cage the Elephant singer Matthew Shultz what was the story behind their band name for their “Name that band!” feature. “We were in Knoxville, Tennessee, hanging outside a club after a show—this is probably in 2006,” Shultz recalled, “and we saw this guy with a shaved head and a long goatee yelling and screaming and talking to himself. I’m pretty sure he had some mental issues going on. He all of a sudden beelined towards us. Everyone jumped into our car and shut the doors. But I didn’t make it into the car. I was stuck outside. I thought for sure the guy was gonna stab me or something, but then he came up to me and gave me a hug. The whole time he was saying, ‘You have to cage the elephant, you have to cage the elephant.’ Afterwards, I was like, ‘We gotta name the band that.'” Read more.
ARTISTdirect spoke with Matt and Brad Shultz of Cage the Elephant in a Q&A, asking the brothers what fans can expect with their second album, tentatively titled ‘Computer Says Move’, out later this year. “We got into a lot of underground post ’80s punk which kind of became the mainstream of the early ’90s like The Pixies, Sonic Youth, The Toadies, Pavement, The Butthole Surfers, Gang of Four, Violent Femmes, Black Flag and Daniel Johnston,” Matt said. Brad added, “It’s the stuff we didn’t discover enough of when we were kids.” Read more.
