Last night Rhye made their TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with a performance of their highly addictive track from last year, "The Fall". The week is young and chances are you're feeling pretty stressed. Take 5 minutes, pop on your headphones and hit play on the performance above. It's sure to wash away at least some of your troubles.
We've not really mentioned Jimmy Eat World too much here on SKOA in recent months (years). We posted up their RSD release back in April, but yesterday they released their seventh studio record, Damage, which was produced by the extremely talented Alain Johannes. So to help promote that they paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform the track "I Will Steal You Back" which I've heard quite a bit in the UK in recent months via numerous Radio Stations. Check them out after the jump via The Audio Perv.
Since they were already in the California neighborhood with headlining sets at Coachella, Phoenix headed over to Hollywood to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Kendrick Lamar returned to the late night TV circuit once more last night. This time he was visiting the outdoor stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and with him he brought along two, to be expected, stellar performances. Taking highlights "Poetic Justice" and a slightly more child friendly version of "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" from his still amazing album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, and he rocked the stage as well as ever. Check out the former at the top with the latter being available after the jump.
After returning to the world last week (almost) completely out of the blue, Fall Out Boy last night returned to the late night TV circuit with a performance of their new track "My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark". Donned head to tow in UV skeleton outfits, complete with Patrick's trademark hat, the band performed the track with the energy they used to be renowned for. I wasn't completely sold on this track when I first heard it, me and Mark have talked about it a fair bit this past week and it's definitely a grower. It seems that the band is as tight as ever in a live situation but see if you agree up at the top.
The band is also set to return with an album titled Save Rock And Roll is now coming out on April 15th rather than the previously announced May 6th.
We've Soundgarden make several late night appearances since the release of their album King Animal. We first got to enjoy them drop several performances on Later... with Jools Holand, and then pop in to David Letterman's slot. They made it a trio in a month last night with two tracks being played on Jimmy Kimmel Live! First up they performed "By Crooked Steps" followed by "Been Away Too Long". Stellar renditions as always. Props to The Audio Perv as always for the video support.
I must say I've really been enjoying the new album the past few weeks so if you've not picked up King Animal yet I'd highly recommend it.
Last night the man with the magic fingers, the artist that really doesn't need any introduction, a man who's had a few name changes over the years, Prince, made a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! Performing on the outdoor stage wearing a glittery gold Hendrix-esque outfit the performance was down right great. I have a huge respect for this guy and his musical ability. Even if you're not a fan of his music you can't deny the talent.
He performed "Rock and Roll Love Affair" along with "The Dance Electric" and you can relive the magic right here courtesy of The Audio Perv. You know th drill. The latter is after the jump with "Rock and Roll Love Affair" being up at the top.
It's nice to see a UK artist going from strength to strength Stateside and last night Ben Howard had a good ol' workout with another visit to the late night TV circuit. We've already seen him perform on David Letterman and that was then followed by a nod from the UK media when he was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. He was on Kimmel last night and laid down a great rendition of "Only Love" which features on his album Every Kingdom. Check out the performance courtesy of The Audio Perv.
