Cage The Elephant's new album is called Melophobia. The word means "fear of music." The band chose the title because of how difficult the recording process for their third album was. Matt Schultz tells Consequence of Sound, "I’ve always read of musicians that couldn’t stand their own music or the sound of their own voice. Now I understand that. To critique something to the point you literally can’t do it anymore. To literally go crazy from it.”
The band just released the first single from the upcoming album. It is called Come A Little Closer. Give it a listen below.
Cage The Elephant will perform with Muse at Time Warner Cable Arena on September 3rd.
