**By [Your Name], New England Concert Reviews**

June 27, 2024 – In an exciting development for rock music enthusiasts, the GRAMMY® Award-winning band Cage The Elephant has released the official music video for their latest single, “Out Loud,” from their sixth studio album, “Neon Pill.” Directed by Loris Russier, the video premiered today on Consequence of Sound, adding another layer of depth to the band’s already dynamic portfolio.

“Neon Pill,” released on May 17, 2024, via RCA Records, represents a significant evolution in Cage The Elephant’s sound. The album has been praised by numerous publications, with PASTE calling it “some of Cage the Elephant’s most polished work to date,” and Rolling Stone highlighting the album’s blend of personal vignettes and abstract lyrics. SPIN Magazine described it as “an album of deeply personal, sophisticated garage rock,” while the Boston Globe noted that the band made “pop-rock pearls from pain” on this release.

Frontman Matthew Shultz shared insights into the album’s creation, stating, “To me, Neon Pill is the first record where we were consistently uninfluenced, and I mean that in a positive way. Everything is undoubtedly expressed through having settled into finding our own voice.”

Currently in the midst of a 47-date North American tour, Cage The Elephant is bringing their electrifying live performances to cities across the continent. With support from Young The Giant and Bakar on most dates, the tour is produced by Live Nation and features stops in major cities including Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City. Tickets and VIP packages are available through the band’s official website.

The tour not only showcases tracks from “Neon Pill” but also serves as a testament to the band’s enduring popularity and their ability to captivate audiences with their high-octane performances. Known for their ecstatic and unchained live shows, Cage The Elephant continues to solidify their reputation as one of the most loved live acts in rock music.

The creation of “Neon Pill” was marked by personal challenges and profound losses for the band members. Nine months into the pandemic, Matthew and Brad Shultz lost their father, and the band faced the consecutive deaths of close friends. Matthew’s struggle with depression and a mental breakdown, which led to hospitalization, added another layer of complexity to the album’s creation. However, these experiences also infused the album with a deep sense of introspection and resilience.

As Cage The Elephant continues their tour and fans eagerly embrace the new music, “Neon Pill” stands as a powerful testament to the band’s journey and their unwavering commitment to their craft. With a blend of polished production, personal storytelling, and energetic performances, Cage The Elephant is set to continue their legacy as one of the premier rock bands of their generation.
