Cage the Elephant Announces New Album 'Neon Pill' and Exclusive iHeartRadio Release Party

Cage the Elephant, the two-time Grammy-winning band known for their eclectic sound and energetic performances, has announced the upcoming release of their sixth full-length album, 'Neon Pill.' Set to drop on May 17, 2024, via RCA Records, the 12-track album promises to be a reflection of the band's experiences, with moments of elation and tension shaping its sound.

Lead singer Matthew Shultz shared his thoughts on the new album, stating, "To me, Neon Pill is the first record where we were consistently uninfluenced, and I mean that in a positive way." He elaborated, "Everything is undoubtedly expressed through having settled into finding our own voice. We've always drawn inspiration from artists we love, and at times we've even emulated some of them to a certain degree. With this album, having gone through so much, life had almost forced us into becoming more and more comfortable with ourselves. We weren't reaching for much outside of the pure experience of self-expression, and simultaneously not necessarily settling either. We just found a uniqueness in simply existing."

The album's fourth single, "Metaverse," has already been released, featuring lyrics that touch on themes of family and perspective. The song's chorus highlights the disconnection from family and the search for perspective, with Shultz singing, "It's a natural progression/No need for affection/Just a perfect deflection/When you've got no perspective."

To celebrate the release of 'Neon Pill,' Cage the Elephant will host an exclusiveiHeartRadio Album Release Partyon May 20, 2024, in virtual reality.
