Canadian destroyers Japandroids have been tearing up the road lately, doing what they do best, but they’re still promoting Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, the long-awaited third album that they released back at the beginning of the year. Last night, in between live shows, they did musical-guest duties on Seth Meyers’ Late Show, where they charged their way through the single “No Known Drink Or Drug.” Brian King wore painted-on jeans and made some impressive guitar noises, while David Prowse wore a Downtown Boys shirt and did the sha-la-la backing vocals. It’s always a bit weird to see a band like this without a fired-up crowd howling along, but they sold it anyway. Watch the performance below.
Near To The Wild Heart Of Life is out now on Anti-.
