The Breeders released a new album, All Nerve, earlier this month via 4AD. All Nerve is the band’s first album in a decade and the first to feature the band’s classic lineup since their beloved 1993 album, Last Splash. Last night the band stopped by Conan perform “Wait in the Car.” Watch the performance below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

As Stereogum points out, the last time the full original lineup of the band appeared on one of Conan O’Brien’s shows was in 1993, when O’Brien was in his first year of hosting Late Night with Conan O’Brien. At the time they performed Last Splash‘s “Divine Hammer” and bassist Josephine Wiggs gave O’Brien a hickey. Watch video of that original performance and interview below too.

Last year The Breeders shared their first new song in eight years, “Wait in the Car,” which was the first song to feature the classic lineup since Last Splash and is included on All Nerve. Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson reunited in 2013 for some shows honoring the 20th anniversary of Last Splash. All Nerve was recorded in various locations: at Candyland, Dayton, Kentucky, with Mike Montgomery; Electrical Audio, Chicago, with Steve Albini and Greg Norman; and with Tom Rastikis at Fernwood Studios, Dayton, Ohio. Chris Bigg did the artwork (he has worked with the band since their first album, 1990’s Pod).

Previously The Breeder’s also shared the new album’s title track, “All Nerve,” as well as “Nervous Mary.” Courtney Barnett sings backing vocals on one track, “Howl at the Summit.”
