Although chart success in England was an unlikely first step to fame for a band from Bowling Green, Kentucky, mainstream rock band Cage the Elephant achieved just that. Formed by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Lincoln Parish, and Daniel Tichenor, the group earned a contract with the Relentless label and released the "Free Love" single late in 2007. A support slot for the Pigeon Detectives beckoned in early 2008, and follow-up single "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" reached the Top 40 in June. The group's self-titled debut followed soon after, becoming a respectable commercial and critical success. Two years later they returned with the single â€œShake Me Down,â€� while early 2011 saw the release of their second album, Thank You Happy Birthday. In early 2012, the band released the live CD and DVD, Live from the Vic in Chicago, which captured performances from their sold out, two night run at the famous Chicago venue. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
