The French band played tracks from their recent LP 'Junk'
M83 performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week (April 21), fronted by a canine-like Anthony Gonzalez.
The singer of the French electronic group was donning a mask and jacket similar to those worn by Michael J. Fox in the 1985 movie Teen Wolf.
M83 were on to showcase tracks from their recently released seventh studio album, ‘Junk’. The five-piece performed ‘Go!’ and ‘Do It, Try It’.
This TV appearance was also the band’s first with their new singer-keyboardist Kaela Sinclair, who joined M83 early last month after Gonzalez put out an open call for someone replace Morgan Kibby, who had parted ways with the group.

‘Go!’ was the last track to be launched by M83 at the start of the month before ‘Junk’ finally dropped on April 8.
Speaking about ‘Go!’ in a press release he wrote himself, Gonzalez said: “We asked [Vai] for the craziest space solo possible, which wasn’t hard for him. He sent us three different takes, and we blended two to make the ultimate Steve Vai solo.”
