LCD Soundsystem confirm ‘SNL’ performance

LCD Soundsystem have been confirmed to play a liver performance on Saturday Night Live.

An evening hosted by Star Trek actor Chris Pine, the New York-based band will play on May 6th which marks their first appearance since a residency at new venue Brooklyn Steel.

It was during that residency that James Murphy an co. debuted new tracks ‘Tonight’, ‘Call Police’ and ‘American Dream’ as the band ramp up excitement around their forthcoming new album.

It has been nearly seven years since This Is Happening, the last full length record from Brooklyn’s wonderfully endearing ‘dance-punk’ pioneers and Murphy, who said the new material will be ‘done soon’, looks set to play some new tracks during their upcoming TV appearance.
