Watch Run The Jewels & TV On The Radio Perform “Angel Duster” On Colbert

The week that they released their astonishing RTJ2 album, Run The Jewels gave an intense, triumphant performance of “Early” on Letterman. And now that the Late Show has a new host, they returned to that stage to do whatever they could to top that last performance. They might’ve pulled it off. TV On The Radio, along with a full string section, stood in as RTJ’s backing band, creating this immense wall of decaying beauty on “Angel Duster” and generally putting an already-huge song over the top. It was quite a spectacle, and it’s very cool to see all these guys finding ways to push themselves and do amazing things on such a big stage. The fact that Stephen Colbert can host a performance like this so soon into his run says good things. Watch the performance below.

RTJ2 is out now on Mass Appeal.
