David Letterman Freaks Out After Watching Cage The Elephant Perform 'Come A Little Closer' Off Their Latest Album 'Melophobia'

Kentucky rockers Cage The Elephant stopped by Late Show with David Letterman last night in support of their latest album, Melophobia (read our review here). They took the stage to sing the album's single, "Come a Little Closer," after which Letterman proceeded to freak out. The song got him so riled him that he just wanted to go "get in a fight or something."

"Come on. Come on. I don't know. What else do you want," Letterman proclaimed. "Are those your drums? How much do you want for them? Nice looking drums. I mean, my god. Really, that's it. No more calls. We have a winner. What do you want? This is all you need! For God's sakes, come on, you guys. Let's go out there and do something! Let's go get in fights or something! Just tremendous. Melophobia, ladies and gentlemen. Cage the Elephant. That's all you need to know."

Looks like Letterman may have found his new favorite band. Melophobia is the Cage's third LP, the follow up to 2011's Thank You Happy Birthday. It came out Tuesday via RCA.
