Cage The Elephant has won 2020’s Best Rock Album GRAMMY for Social Cues (RCA). The honor marks the band’s second win and the third time they have been nominated. The band won 2017’s Best Rock Album GRAMMY for Tell Me I’m Pretty and was nominated in 2015 for Best Alternative Music Album for Melophobia.
This week, Cage The Elephant shared a new version of their song “Broken Boy,” featuring Iggy Pop. The track finds the godfather of punk singing a verse and contributing backing vocals to the opening song off the band’s celebrated fifth studio album, Social Cues.
The band’s performance on Austin City Limits, taped at the Moody Theater, aired on January 25th as part of the long running PBS show’s 45th season. During the taping, which The Austin Chronicle said continued the band’s “ascendant rampage into rock & roll history,” the band performed hit songs including “Social Cues,” “Trouble,” “Broken Boy” and “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked.”
Additionally, the band has been nominated for both “Alternative Rock Artist Of The Year” and “Alternative Rock Song Of The Year” for “Ready To Let Go” at the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The band recently wrapped up their two-month long amphitheater “The Night Running Tour” with Beck featuring Spoon in the US. The band announced a UK & European tour in early 2020 that also features SWMRS and Post Animal. See all tour dates below and visit www.cagetheelephant.com for more information.
