Tell Me I’m Pretty’s two singles, “Mess Around” and “Trouble,” both topped the Alternative charts for a total of seven #1 Alternative songs, the most of any artist this decade.
Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage The Elephant have sold out several headlining runs including a summer 2016 arena tour and recent sold out UK and European tour. Additionally, Cage The Elephant’s self-titled debut album was recently certified RIAA platinum.
