Rolling Stone has learned that blues-rock duo the Black Keys have been booked as the musical guest for the December 3rd episode of Saturday Night Live, with host Steve Buscemi. The band, who will be promoting their seventh album, El Camino, will have the rare distinction of appearing on the show twice in the same year; their first time on the long-running sketch series was on the January 8th episode with host Jim Carrey.

Buscemi, who currently stars in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, is also a returning guest, but hasn't hosted the show since the April 4th, 1998 episode with Third Eye Blind. You can check out an excellent bit from that episode, featuring the actor as the proprietor of a food pawn shop, in the clip below.
