Published Apr 07, 2015Long-running indie rockers the Mountain Goats return this week with their new wrestling-themed LP Beat the Champ, and they took to the ring (or, you know, the television studio stage) to perform on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night (April 6).
Frontman John Darnielle led the group through the sax-heavy, lyric-laden "Foreign Object." And while the song itself might be disturbingly violent, the band manage to make getting stabbed in the eye sound kind of fun.
Give it a watch and decide for yourself below. The group also stuck around for a second song, delivering "Pigs That Ran Straightaway into the Water, Triumph Of" from 2004's We Shall All Be Healed, which you can keep scrolling to see.
Beat the Champ is out now via Merge Records.
