Cage the Elephant is an American rock band from Bowling Green, Kentucky, that formed in mid-2006. Since their formation, the band has gained a massive following in the US as well as the UK and Canada for their sound and their high-energy live performances.
While in high school, three of the members of Cage the Elephant (Matthew lillard, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion) were in a band known as "Perfect Confusion" and released one self-titled album under that name. Contrary to many rumors, Perfect Confusion did not change their name to Cage the Elephant. Perfect Confusion broke up, after which Cage the Elephant was formed.
