We first discovered Born Cages after an opening slot at The Studio at Webster Hall back in December of 2013. They quickly won us over with plenty of on stage energy and a sound that could be the lovechild from a whirlwind romance of The Strokes and The Darkness.
“The Sidelines EP”, the bands debut effort, has been getting a lot of buzz, featuring songs like “Caiti” and “Perfect Harmony“. Born Cages recently released a video for the new single, “Don’t Look Back” to high praises from around the industry. Lead singer/guitarist Vlad Holiday shreds his way through every song with ferocity that is only matched by his onstage energy and charisma. The band always connects with the crowd, making sure we’re all singing along and having the most fun!
Watch the video for “Don’t Look Back” below!
Fresh off a slew of dates in the Southeast, including Austin’s SXSW Festival, Born Cages are finally back home in NY. Their Tuesday night show packed Bowery Electric full of familiar faces as well as many new fans. It was definitely a warm “welcome home” for the band, who hope to release their first full length album soon!
If you haven’t already, pick up a copy of “The Sidelines EP” on iTunes and Amazon, or catch Born Cages live at Santo’s Party House in NYC this Thursday, May 8th. Doors are at 7PM for this all ages show. Buy tickets HERE!
