We spit into our hands and shook on it. Then, wordlessly, we made small cuts on the tips of our index fingers, rubbed them together and became blood brothers. We never actually filmed the video, it just leapt from our shared imaginings into the world, vital and fully-formed.”

Cage The Elephant’s acclaimed 3rd album Melophobia, is available now on iTunes.
