Watch: The Afghan Whigs perform on Letterman

on June 05, 2014, 8:05am

The Afghan Whigs have already appeared on late-night TV once or twice since reforming in 2011, but never with an album to support. However, with the April release of Do To The Beast, the band’s first record in 16 years, there was plenty of new material to chose from for last night’s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. They ended up going with “Matamoros” and you can replay the performance below.

Fun fact: The Afghan Whigs previously appeared on Letterman back in 1996. Here’s what it looked like way back when:

The Whigs are currently out on tour supporting Do to the Beast, and they’ll be returning for a fresh North American trek in August. They’ll also set to appear at the Chicago and Toronto editions of Riot Fest, as well as Seattle’s Bumbershoot. Update: The band has expanded their itinerary, adding new dates in August and October. See the itinerary below.
