"Melophobia" is the third studio album by Bowling Green, Kentucky, alternative rock band Cage The Elephant. Recorded at St. Charles Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and once again produced by Jay Joyce (The Wallflowers, Patty Griffin), the album was released last week through RCA Records.
Melophobia means "fear of music"; the band did not view the term literally, but rather thought of the term as "a fear of creating music to project premeditated images of self, like catering to cool, or making music to project an image of being intellectual or artistic or poetic, rather than just trying to be an honest communicator."
Listen to the full album in streaming on SoundCloud and if you still haven't, watch the tour video for the first single "Come A Little Closer" here.
Icon For Hire's self-titled sophomore album will be released next Tuesday, October 15th, via Tooth & Nail Records.

The album debuted on the Billboard 200 Album chart, peaked at #4 on the iTunes Rock chart, and charted at #19 overall. Their videos for "Make A Move" and "Get Well" have received over 6 million views on YouTube.
Here's what Ariel & Co. said about the new record: "After 18 months of touring and lots of journaling, we went away to write our most vulnerable music yet. We are not a one dimensional band so we didn't write a one dimensional record."
