Cage The Elephant and Silversun Pickups announce arena tour with Foals, Bear Hands

Cage The Elephant

Alt-rockers Cage The Elephant [pictured] and Silversun Pickups have teamed up for the Spring Fling Rock AF 2016 tour. (Really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?) The 15-date trek will hit arenas in such exotic locales as Johnson City, Tennessee, and Southaven, Mississippi, alongside more boring places like Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Sacramento, and features support acts Foals and Bear Hands.

“There’s a real sense of camaraderie and a shared philosophy amongst all of us on this tour,” Cage The Elephant frontman Matt Shultz says. “We come from all over the world, but we share a love of music and being on the road. These shows will celebrate that spirit.”

“It’s going to be so fun to be able to play with these bands who are like family to us,” Silversun Pickups vocalist/guitarist Brian Aubert adds. “We’re all going to keep each other on the top of our game. A great game. Let the games begin.”
