Fruit Bats were the featured musical guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday, where the band performed “The Balcony”. The song comes off the Eric D. Johnson-led outfit’s latest album, The Pet Parade, released on March 5th.

Recorded live at Icehouse in Minneapolis, this performance saw Johnson recruit familiar faces of the Minneapolis music scene. For “The Balcony”, Johnson enlisted drummer JT Bates, bassist Michael Lewis, guitarist Jeremy Ylvisaker, and keyboardist Bryan Nichols. According to the Star Tribune, Johnson has previously shared the stage with Bates and Lewis during the 2018 debut of his side project, Bonny Light Horseman, at Wisconsin’s Eaux Claires music festival.

In this pre-taped performance, audiences get a dose of Fruit Bats’ time-tested indie-pop-rock sound. Coming 20 years into the band’s history, which has seen Johnson share the stage with a variety of sidemen and backing musicians, his songwriting is as potent as ever in this tune about the eternal longing of waiting for better days ahead.
