Cage The Elephant, gearing up for the release of the Kinks-esque song “Cold Cold Cold,” a track off of 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty, as the album’s third single, took to Stephen Colbert’s Late Show stage to do what they do best: perform.
While the band’s ability to craft a catchy rock song is undeniable, it’s their often-raucous live shows that are behind their continued success, and they made good on their reputation on last night’s TV performance. While frontman Matt Schultz remained shirted through the whole performance, and didn’t engage in any crowd surfing, he did climb atop Colbert’s desk towards the end of the song, and his brother, guitarist Brad Schultz, made sure to give Colbert a kiss on the lips as they shook hands.
Cage The Elephant
will be touring Europe for much of the early year, but they’ll return to the U.S. for a series of recently announced festival sets this summer, including Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball and Shaky Knees.
