BROCKHAMPTON made their debut appearance on Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to perform “DON’T SHOOT UP THE PARTY”. The track is off the collective’s latest album, ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE, which dropped in April. Watch the performance below.
The Colbert performance saw BROCKHAMPTON gather around a circular set while bathed in brightly colored flashing lights. The disorienting effects punctuated the g-funk-inspired song’s lyrics addressing social issues like gun violence, racism, and homophobia. Kevin Abstract opens the track by passionately rapping, “All American self-hatred runs deep/ White boys all I see whenever I sleep.”
Earlier this month, Abstract explained why the boyband only has one studio album left. “we all love each other and we wanna continue making the best music we can everybody just getting a lil older and got a lot to say outside of group projects,” he wrote on Twitter. “we’ve dedicated the last ten years of our lives to making music together this next project we’re just doing what’s rite.
In a subsequent tweet, Abstract teased a “roadrunner plus pack on streaming services,” making it clear that the group isn’t done with their most recent album quite yet.
