Cage The Elephant
While in high school, three of the members of Cage the Elephant (Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion) were in a band known as "Complete Confusion" and released one self-titled album under that name. Contrary to many rumors, Perfect Confusion did not change their name to Cage the Elephant. Perfect Confusion broke up, after which Cage the Elephant was formed. The group's audience expanded exponentially throughout 2011. Although they were formed in the late 2000s, the band earned the top spot in Rolling Stone's "Reader's Poll: The Best New Artist of 2011". In January 2012, the band released a live album titled Live from The Vic in Chicago, recorded during their 2011 tour and also toured with the Big Day Out music festival. The band teased a new single, "Come A Little Closer" via their YouTube channel on August 1st, 2013. They also announced that the full single would be premiered on August 8th, 2013, and would later be released for purchase on iTunes on August 13th.
