CAKE, an eclectic rock band formed in California in the early 90s, is comprised of John McCrea, Vincent DiFiore, Xan McCurdy, Gabriel Nelson and Paulo Baldi.  CAKE first gained recognition in 1993 with the release of their debut single, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Lifestyle.”  Since then, the band has put out numerous celebrated albums, including 1996’s Fashion Nugget and 2001’s Comfort Eagle, as well as their sixth full length album, 2011’s Showroom of Compassion. 


As a testament to the band’s popularity over their nearly two decade career, Showroom of Compassion debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, driven by the success of the catchy first single, “Sick of You.”  This album was released on CAKE’s own Upbeat Records, and the band personally engineered and recorded the release in their own solar-powered studio, which generates more power than is needed to run it.  The band will embark on a worldwide tour in July.


CAKE’s LIVE ON LETTERMAN webcast will follow the taping of their performance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, which will be broadcast Thursday, June 30 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
