We’re always proud to see Aussie bands repping our country on U.S. TV, but especially so when it’s Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds giving an enthralling version of ‘Rings of Saturn’.

Taken from their latest album Skeleton Tree, which is – there’s no other way to put it – the definition of “haunting”, ‘Rings of Saturn’ went over predictably well with the enamored Colbert crowd.

The band were in New York to play a couple of shows at the Beacon Theatre as they continued their North American tour, and will be heading off to the UK and Europe immediately afterwards.
