Watch: Violent Femmes Play Their First TV Appearance in 16 Years on ‘Colbert’

Colbert makes a special appearance on "Blister In The Sun"

With the coming release of Violent Femmes’ long-waited follow up album to 2000’s Freak Magnet, called We Can Do Anything this March, the band is making a lot of chatter. In 16 years we’ve heard no new material and seen no live TV performances; that is until The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week.

The veteran, alt-rockers performed for the first time in 16-years on the Late Show stage. Check out their performances of “Memory,” and “Blister in the Sun” below:
