on April 19, 2019, 9:42am

Cage the Elephant returned today with the release of their new record, Social Cues. Their fifth to date follows Tell Me I’m Pretty, the 2015 Dan Auerbach-produced LP that eventually took home the Grammy for Best Rock Album.

To support Social Cues, the band swung by the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday Night to perform “Ready to Let Go”, the album’s lead single. Dressed in an inky black pleather jump suit complete with matching cowboy hat and demon contact lenses, frontman Matt Shultz writhed about the stage to the slinky track.
