Forecastle 2017 is right around the corner. We’re celebrating with 40 Days of Forecastle, covering the festival from all angles — playlists, artist interviews, city guides, behind-the-scenes stories, and a whole lot more. WFPK’s 40 Days of Forecastle is made possible by Kiel Thomson Company and Spalding University.

Kentucky natives and Forecastle 2017 artists Cage the Elephant have been toying around with their own songs on their most recent tour, and it’s now resulted in a new album. Unpeeled, set to release July 28, captures their catalog in a new light, with orchestra and tempered arrangements, and was recorded live while on the US run. Aside from the 18 originals, there are thee covers, one of which is a faithful take on the Wreckless Eric classic Whole Wide World, a surefire singalong on their upcoming stop at Forecastle.
