Recent Grammy winners Cage the Elephant are back on tour this month, but in the midst of their spring trek, the band will break from their traditional show for a special set of "Live & Unpeeled" acoustic tour dates where they'll be accompanied by a string quartet.

Guitarist Brad Shultz says, “After our recent acoustic performance at the Bridge School Benefit, we wanted to share this intimate experience with our fans and take it on the road. We plan to add in a string quartet to make it really cool."

"Live & Unpeeled" will be the band's first ever acoustic tour and will hit such major cities as Los Angeles, Sacramento, Washington, D.C. and Nashville along the way. The run starts April 10 in Escondido, Calif., at the California Center for the Arts and continues through the end of the month, concluding at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium on April 30. See the full itinerary below.

Tickets for these special shows go on sale Friday, March 10 at 12PM local time at this location. There are also Crowdrise packages that allow fans to meet the band, upgrade to front row tickets, and be entered to win a signed acoustic guitar. Ticket holders can make a donation to the band's Crowdrise page, with all the proceeds aiding the Buddy House/Down Syndrome of Southern Kentucky.

Cage the Elephant are supporting their most recent album, Tell Me I'm Pretty, which was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.
