Following the release of new album What Separates Me From You late last year, A Day To Remember took to the stage on Jimmy Kimmel last night. They stepped up and delivered roaring performances of lead single "All I Want" which we got to see the cameo filled video of last week. Along with this they played album track "Better Off This Way" which you can catch after the jump. What Separates Me From You is out now if you fancy picking it up.
Yesterday Cage The Elephant's new album Thank You, Happy Birthday was released and to coincide with this, the band paid a visit to David Letterman's late night slot and brought along a few performance.
