The Airborne Toxic Event recently dropped by the Late Show with David Letterman, where they performed “Timeless.” The anthemic ballad appears on new EP The Secret.
The host seemed to be a big fan of both the performance and the band’s gear.
“God that was nice. I love that guitar. It’s a beautiful guitar,” said Letterman pointing at singer Mikel Jollet’s Gretsch Black Falcon. “The Airborne Toxic Event – that was lovely.”

Rockabilly pioneer Wanda Jackson hit David Letterman last night to promote her new album The Party Ain’t Over. Joined by special guest Jack White (on his vintage Gretsch) and his Third Man House Band, the 73-year-old singer shook things up by performing Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’ 1960s hit “Shakin’ All Over.”
Letterman was so pleased by the performance that he asked for more.
“Oh my God,” he exclaimed. “Holy Crap. Whoa!! Who was doing that? Oh my God. Oh my goodness.”
