Time to swing that spotlight around and shine it brightly onto a new band. This time we’re taking a closer look at New York City-based indie alt-rock band Born Cages, who are about to release their debut full-length CD called I’m Glad I’m Not Me, dropping on June 2nd.

Vlad Holiday formed Born Cages in 2011 and the group dove head-first into New York City’s unique indie rock movement. He is joined by Dave Tantao on drums and Matt Maroulakos on bass. The band has received nods from the likes of Rolling Stone, MTV.com, and Vice Noisey and they have shared bills with a bevy of acts such as Har Mar Superstar, Gold Fields, Said The Whale and Royal Teeth. They were even handpicked by Guns N’ Roses to be the sole support band on two sold out GN’R club shows.

Check out two of the tracks which will appear on the new CD:
