Hair-raising rock band Cage The Elephant is extending its North American tour by more than three months, playing a massive amount of shows across half of the United States and all of the non-Atlantic, non-tundra Canadian provinces (next time, Nunavut). Most of the tour’s support comes from Manchester Orchestra, a band that is neither from Manchester nor sounds orchestral in the least. The band will spend July opening for the Black Keys in Canada, which is pretty cool (both opening for the Black Keys and Canada itself).

Cage The Elephant is supporting its sophomore album, Thank You Happy Birthday, which was released in January via Jive. The band is famous for its raucous onstage performances, which is good, because you have something like 45 chances to see if it lives up to its reputation. Notable is the stop at Coachella, which is looking to have a crazy-awesome lineup this year.
