The Bowling Green, Kentucky-based

Cage The Elephant

is previewing their up coming new album "Thank You Happy Birthday" for FREE on their

myspace site

. No word how long this will last leading up to the album's January 11th worldwide release.

From listening to it today I can tell you they've added a little more straight rock into their sound, with a touch of punk on occasions,  compared to their 2008 self-titled debut. But, they also remain loyal to their funk style roots.

I'm just wondering when the hell they're gonna schedule a Bowling Green or Louisville, Kentucky show that being said. Hmm. Once they remember they're from the bluegrass state, I'll hit this website back up with some better news. It'll probably be roadtrip to Bowling Green for all you die hard fans that want to go.

In the meantime, catch the new album while you can or check out their video "In One Ear" now

About Jason Ashcraft

Jason is a life-long Louisville native who grew up in the Highlands, and now resides in an undisclosed fortified location somewhere in Louisville. He's followed Louisville's rock music scene for almost 10 years, first as a concert promoter, then an artist manager, and now a music critic and reviewer. He's one crazy Jarhead who'll literally publish anything his mind conceives on impulse, so don't always expect him to follow the traditional laws of journalism. He has intent of reviving Hunter S. Thompson's “gonzo journalism” if only his editors will allow it...which they don't usually. Head over to LouisvilleScuttlebutt.com for more published rhetoric.
