Cage the Elephant Working On Next Album

(Radio.com) Cage the Elephant released their third album Melophobia only six months ago, but they're already working on its follow-up. For a band who usually takes two to three years between records, the decision to immediately get back to work was a new and welcome change.

"I always come out of the studio and I feel empty, I feel almost paranoid that I'll never write another song," guitarist, Brad Shultz told Radio.com at Coachella. "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."

Matt Shultz, Brad's brother and Cage's lead singer, said with Melophobia, the band "broke a wall down" and became more open to trying new things.

"In the past I think that we relied on the heroes of our adolescence to kind of shape our music," Matt said. "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."

The brothers say they've been writing a lot recently and already have a bunch of demos stashed on their phones. And even though the band doesn't plan on heading back into the studio until the fall, Matt and Brad have started a friendly competition of sorts over who can write the most songs until then. more on this story
