Bowling Green natives and current (partial) Nashville residents Cage the Elephant are still grinding along on their Melophobia album cycle — it's a cycle that began with a super-secret album-preview performance, continued with some dates opening for arena-progsters Muse and chugs along now with television appearances and dates with English indie rockers Foals. Last night, Cage chugged right on along to Jimmy Kimmel Live's Sony Outdoor Stage (hey, what label are they signed to again?), where they played a pair of Melophobia tunes: lead single "Come a Little Closer" (watch above) and album cut "Take It or Leave It" (after the jump). Points to that clutch auxiliary man over there in the wings, providing some extra instrumentation and doubled vocals. Sounding good. Enjoy!
Update: The YouTube links appear to have been pulled. You can watch the entire episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! at this link. Also, as pointed out below by commenter Franne Jennings, founding member Lincoln Parish did not appear with Cage the Elephant on the show, and it appears as though he has left the band.
