Watch Japandroids Perform “Near to the Wild Heart of Life” on Colbert

Japandroids will tell you that they used to be good. Now they’re bad and performing “Near to the Wild Heart of Life”—the title track of their recently released album—at The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The Vancouver duo is on maximum strength here; Brian King spends a majority of the performance shouting with his eyes closed shut, just like a post-punk bad boy should. Watch the performance below.
