CULTURE:A Conversation with Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant

We sat down with the frontman for Cage The Elephant, Matt Shultz right after their sound check at the brand new Chelsea Theater inside the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas. Matt talked to us about their humble beginnings trying to make it big in the UK, even though they are from the US. We learned about his family musical background and his earliest memory of music. And we heard how his definition of success has changed over the years. 


Cage The Elephant has been considered by KROQ to be one of the greatest live bands out now, and when they took over the brand new Chelsea Theater at the always controversial Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, they left the audience walking out stunned and wanting more. Luckily, the US will see Cage The Elephant in the upcoming spring months while they tour alongside Foals, and of course CTE will be hitting up various festivals like Coachella and Firefly.
