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 large following in the US as well as the UK and Canada for their sound and their high-energy live performances. The band released their self-titled debut album on May 19, 2008 (June 23, 2008 in the UK). The album made them very popular in both Europe and America. On January 11, 2011, the group released their second album, Thank You, Happy Birthday (March 21, 2011 in the UK). The second album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and earned the band much positive reception. Both albums were produced by Jay Joyce of Jive Records.
