Fleet Foxes set for 'Saturday Night Live'
Fleet Foxes are set to perform as the musical guests on this week's 'Saturday Night Live', set to air January 17 on NBC.

The Seattle indie rockers will be just the sixth band from an independent label to snag the coveted spot on the legendary US television show in its more-than-30-year history.

The band are planning to perform two songs from their 2008 self-titled debut album: 'Blue Ridge Mountains' and 'Mykonos'. Actress Rosario Dawson will host the episode.

Meanwhile, the band are scheduled to play three sold-out shows at London's Roundhouse in February.
