With their new album set to be released in a few months, Cage the Elephant have returned to treat fans to another new song. On Friday (March 8), the Kentucky-founded band premiered their second single off Social Cues; a track titled “House of Glass.”
The two-and-a-half-minute track finds frontman Matt Shultz talk-singing his way through the punk-tinged tune. In addition to the new song, the band also released a visual video for the track which looks like it took a lot of inspiration from arcade games from the 80s. Watch the lyric video for “House of Glass” above.
“House of Glass” joins the band’s current alternative radio hit “Ready to Let Go” on their forthcoming fifth studio album. Social Cues is due out April 19 through RCA. Pre-orders for the upcoming studio effort are currently available on Cage the Elephant’s website.
Social Cues is the follow-up to the act’s 2015 Grammy-Award-winning album, Tell Me I’m Pretty.
In support of the new album’s upcoming release, Cage the Elephant previously announced plans to hit the road with Beck during the summer months. Dubbed the “Night Running” North American tour (after the musicians’ collaboration), the trek will find the tour mates performing across the continent throughout July and August.
The tour begins on July 11 at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington and concludes about a month and a half later on Aug. 30 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Spoon will join Cage the Elephant and Beck on the forthcoming outing as their main supporting act while Starcrawler, Wild Belle, and Sunflower Bean will appear on select dates.
Tickets for the “Night Running” tour are currently available for purchase.
