Noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells have been announced as the musical guest for the February 18th episode of Saturday Night Live, which will be hosted by Maya Rudolph. Rudolph, a cast member on the show between 1999 and 2007, was in the hit film Bridesmaids last summer and currently stars in the NBC sitcom Up All Night.

The band's appearance on the show will come just days before the release of their second album, Reign of Terror. According to Pitchfork, the band will perform their new single, "Comeback Kid," along with the relatively mellow album cut "End of the Line."

As a result of the booking, the rockers will postpone a February 16th gig in Washington, D.C. and a February 18th show in Toronto to make time for the taping. Those dates have been rescheduled to March 26th and 27th, respectively.
