Bon Iver will make their debut appearance on Saturday Night Live with the February 4th episode of the long-running sketch comedy show, which will be hosted by actor Channing Tatum. The band, led by songwriter Justin Vernon, will perform selections from their highly acclaimed second album, Bon Iver, as a nine-piece ensemble.

Bon Iver's appearance on SNL will come just over a week before the Grammy Awards, where the indie act is up for four major awards including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. The group is also set to appear high on the bill at the Coachella festival in April.
