Since both of the big name indie rock bands from Southcentral Kentucky have now completed recording their new albums, it will be a double hitter or a double headliner if you will, hopefully bringing more national and world-wide attention to the Bowling Green, Ky., music scene this Fall.
When Cage The Elephant's and Sleeper Agent's latest albums come out on the RCA record label soon, both bands already have a lot in common. Both bands are from Bowling Green, they are all friends, they both got their start at the famous local music venue, "Tidballs" and they both have the same Nashville producer, Jay Joyce.
This will be Cage The Elephant's third album and Sleeper Agent's second. Both bands toured together during 2010 and 2011 all over the country. Even Cage The Elephant lead singer, Matt Schultz directed Sleeper Agent's "Get Burned" video which was filmed in an old brothel in downtown Bowling Green.
However, since Sleeper Agent has a new manager, Missy Worth, the veteran from LA, she hooked them up with producer Eric Bass of Shinedown. Sleeper Agent recorded three songs with Bass in Charleston, S.C., back in June. Sleeper Agent also produced one of the songs and Joyce produced and recorded the rest. Both both bands will be touring extensively all over to promote their new albums according to sources.
