Silversun Pickups Release ‘Cannibal’ Video With Help From Jimmy Kimmel
By Jay Tilles
For the very first time last night (Feb 18), Jimmy Kimmel went head-to-head with Jimmy Fallon in the coveted 11:35 late-night spot.
And while Fallon was in New York showing off his hip-hop dance moves with Will Smith and having U2 perform at the Top of the Rock, Kimmel was once again sharing his Hollywood stage with Silverlake rockers, Silversun Pickups, who performed their alt rock classic “Lazy Eye” as well as a new single, “Cannibal.”
Following the live performance the band premiered their new video for “Cannibal” on the late night show’s new YouTube channel, Jimmy Kimmel Live Music, which gives Kimmel’s more musically inclined fans an outlet to find their favorite performances from the late night show, along with other treats from the host’s favorite artists.
Between scenes of the band playing in a deserted parking lot, the eerie video follows half a dozen people running from something that we can only assume is the cannibal.
The band is set to release The Singles Collection, which features 11 best-of tracks plus one new song, “Cannibal,” on February 25.
