Watch The Raconteurs Rock Out 2 Songs On Kimmel

ABC

The Raconteurs released their very good comeback album Help Us Stranger in June, and they marked the occasion with a two-night stand at The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. About a month has passed since then, and to remind you of the album’s existence, Jack White and Brendan Benson’s band returned to TV last night, performing two songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

First up was the Benson-led “Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying),” which featured some fiery lead guitar work from White. Next, White took the lead on an intense rendition of “Don’t Bother Me” punctuated by some piercing backup vocals from Benson and the gang. Both songs were proof of how vibrant classic rock can still sound when performed by a band that knows what it’s doing. The Raconteurs has never been my favorite Jack White project, but these performances are impressive enough to make me curious about what their live show might be like. And wouldn’t you know it, they’re on tour right now.

Watch both songs and check out the Raconteurs’ live dates below.
