Foo Fighters have been announced as the musical guests for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Dave Chappelle will host the post-election episode.
The band, which is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, have seemingly been teasing their 10th studio LP as fans have spotted the group’s ‘FF’ logo in various locations alongside an ‘X’, the Roman numeral for 10.
Foo Fighters have appeared seven times on the late-night show thus far. They last performed there in 2017, the same year they released their most recent album Concrete and Gold. This weekend will also mark Dave Chappele’s second time as host, following his Emmy Award-winning appearance in 2016, where he addressed Donald Trump’s electoral victory in his monologue. An announcement on Twitter on Wednesday (November 4) showed a snippet from that monologue, in which the comedian says, “America’s done it. We’ve actually elected an Internet troll as our president.”
