As mentioned recently, Cage the Elephant will release their third full-length album, Melophobia, on October 8th.
The follow-up to their 2011 album Thank You Happy Birthday, Melophobia comes with some heightened anticipation – after all, TYHB was rather impressive for a major-label sophomore effort.
We shared the album’s lead single, Come a Little Closer, last week – and this week the Kentucky gentlemen revealed the album’s irreverent artwork and track listing information.
Here’s the track list:
Come a Little Closer
It’s Just Forever (featuring Alison Mosshart)
Take It or Leave It
The band will hit the road in the fall for some tour dates with Muse – here’s the schedule:
9/3 – Charlotte, N.C. Time Warner Cable Arena*
9/4 – Duluth, Ga. The Arena At Gwinnett Center*
9/6 – Nashville, Tenn. Bridgestone Arena*
9/8 – Pittsburgh, Pa. Consol Energy Center*
9/9 – Philadelphia, Pa. Wells Fargo Center*
9/11 – Washington, D.C. Verizon Center*
9/14 – Maryland Heights, Mo. Verizon Wireless Amph.
9/17 – Denver, Colo. Pepsi Center*
9/19 – Salt Lake City, Utah EnergySolutions Arena*
9/21 – Oceanside, Calif. FM 94/9 Independence Jam
9/27 – Kansas City, Mo. 96.5 The Buzz Beach Ball
It’s safe to assume the band will add a slew of additional dates sometime soon, as they’ll likely be bringing their spastic live show to a mid-sized theater near you.
Pre-orders for the record are ongoing via MyPlay Direct.
