Cage9 is a Panamanian/American rock band, formed in Panama City in 1993. The group was founded by Evan Rodaniche (guitar/vocals) and is currently based out of Los Angeles, California.

Cage9 has been direct openers for Ozzy Osbourne and Bad Religion, as well as having shared the stage with notable acts like 12 Stones, Black Light Burns, CJ Ramone, Adema, Lacey Sturm, Asking Alexandria, Ill Niño, Bobaflex, Queensrÿche, Candlebox, Seether, Sevendust, Hellyeah, Filter, In This Moment, Tesla, Karnivool, Buckcherry, MxPx, Powerman 5000, Strata, Dokken, Quiet Riot, Lynch Mob, Hinder, Boy Hits Car and Smile Empty Soul among many others bands and acts.

The band's song "My Doppelgänger (Doble Opuesto)," was released in English as well in Spanish and received full rotation on MTV Latino.[1] The song "Hearts & Stars" is on the soundtrack of the video game MX vs. ATV: Untamed.[2] Cage9 recorded a version of the theme song to The Dukes of Hazzard, which was used in the trailers for the 2005 film and The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning. The band also recorded music for a WWE promotion for Stone Cold Steve Austin[3] and composed the Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight theme song, called "Let's Ride".[] On March 3, 2006, Cage9 made an appearance on G4's Attack of the Show!.[4]

Performing under the pseudonym "Evan9," Rodaniche was the guitar player for the band Powerman 5000 between 2007 and 2011 and produced their 2009 album Somewhere on the Other Side of Nowhere and their 2014 album "Builders of the Future" as well. [5]

In 2012, Cage9 toured the U.S. with The Sammus Theory, with additional shows in Japan as part of The Unionway Festival.[6]

The band spent 2013 and 2014 on tour supporting their album "How to Shoot Lasers from Your Eyes". After it they started the recording sessions for a new album later called "Illuminator". On June 3, 2016 Cage9 released their latest album "Illuminator" on EMP Label Group, and was followed by a series of shows and festivals. They closed the year touring with Lacey Sturm across the U.S. Former bassist and longtime member Gustavo Aued also returned to the band after playing with Powerman 5000 for a few years. Since then the band has played selective shows.

In March 2019, Cage9 release "Hypesthesia" (hypoesthesia is a reduced or loss of sensitivity to sensory stimuli; numbness). The band plan to spend much of 2019 on the road promoting the new album.
