Cage the Elephant have announced a special one off unplugged show in London. Following their acoustic performance at the Bridge School Benefit, the band have decided to bring the intimate show to their fans again on July 10th. This performance in Union Chapel will be the only date in their tour where the band will be taking the electric away from their performance. Tickets for this one of a kind show go on sale on Friday 16th July at 9am.
For those who aren’t lucky enough to make it, Cage the Elephant will be releasing Unpeeled a fully unplugged album this summer. Recorded in different parts of the states, the album will feature 18 acoustic tracks, most of which being curated tracks from their four former albums. Three tracks will be interpretations of existing songs. Taking their music to a different level the band have incorporated strings and choir accompaniment.
“We connected with the songs in a way we hadn’t before. It was really all about the balance of the intimacy and the delicacy of how we approach playing these songs live acoustically and with strings as we hadn’t done before. We were very transparent, and we found the more honest you can be with yourself, the more honest you can be with everyone else.” is how guitarist Brad Schultz explained the process behind Unpeeled. No official date has been set for the album’s release, however follow Cage The Elephant’s social media for more updates.
