Pearl Jam vs. Cage the Elephant – Cage Match
The battle of Seattle is over with Pearl Jam's 'Sirens' album emerging victorious over Soundgarden's 'Halfway There' in the latest Cage Match. Pearl Jam have two victories in a row, but will they continue on the path to the Cage Match Hall of Fame?
Their latest opponents hail from the Midwest. Cage the Elephant are releasing 'Melophobia' this coming Tuesday, Oct. 8, and their latest single 'Come a Little Closer' is climbing the charts. Having just completed dates with Muse, the band only has a few U.S. dates this fall before heading overseas to Europe in February. The 'Melophobia' album is currently available for pre-order here.
