Portishead and Radiohead to appear on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'

Get more: Music, Jimmy Fallon
09/30/2011 by Olivia Allin

Portishead is slated to appear on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" next week, marking the band's first TV appearance in 13 years.

The British band was popular in the '90s but has been relatively off the radar since they released their third album, "Third" in 2008. Earlier in the year, the band announced plans for a new album and tour. They will perform on "Late Night" on Wednesday, October 5.

Also slated to appear on "Late Night" next week is Radiohead, who are slated to play "Give Up the Ghost" from their album, "The King of Limbs."

Portishead was formed in 1991 in Bristol, U.K. and was named after a nearby town of the same name. The group consists of members Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley.

Their first album, "Dummy," was released in 1994 and the group stepped out of the spotlight for three years before releasing their self-titled second album in 1997.

Portishead's touring drummer Clive Deamer, from the band Get the Blessing, has conveniently recently appeared alongside Radiohead drummer Phil Selway in the bands recent live appearances.

The band performed in several European festivals over the summer and will headline the All Tomorrow's Parties music festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey over the weekend.
