Watch The Breeders perform two songs on US TV

The Breeders performed two songs on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (May 7). Scroll down to watch their performance.

Taking a break from their current US tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of 1993's Last Splash, the Kim Deal-fronted band performed their best-known song 'Cannonball', plus a web exclusive of 'Driving On 9'.

The Breeders will play five dates throughout the UK and Ireland next month, including a slot at ATP Camber Sands festival, which is curated by Deerhunter and also features performances from Atlas Sound, Panda Bear and a DJ set from Animal Collective.

The Breeders play:

Dublin Vicar Street (June 14)

Manchester Ritz (18)
London Forum (19)
Camber Sands ATP Festival (21)
