Many music critics like to throw shade at Greta Van Fleet, who is known for their throwback, classic rock sound. Cage The Elephant, on the other hand, thinks otherwise.

Cage The Elephant frontman Matt Shultz opened up in a recent interview about his band’s place in the rock world.

He actually feels they transcend genre, and isn’t afraid to back up anyone getting pigeonholed.

“It’s funny and kind of sad really that people have equated a musical group and hinged it to the words ‘rock and roll,’ and forgot the versatility of several instrumentalists composing together,” Shultz admits.

You can grab Cage The Elephant’s new album, “Social Cues,” which is available now.
