Band Of Horses will make an appearance in the season finale of Veep, which airs this Sunday on HBO. Lead singer Ben Bridwell told Billboard he has a few friends who work on the show, which is why they tapped his band to play during an election night party. Bridwell himself will also have a line of dialogue in the show He wasn’t a fan of Veep before, but he is now:
To be honest I had never seen the show, but that’s just because I don’t see a lot of shows. I was very much coming into it blind. I spent the day before kind of cramming, and watching episode after episode — from the beginning. I think I watched the whole damn [series], up to the new one being filmed. I became a fan instantly, it’s fucking hilarious. I’ve been watching this season as a dedicated follower of the show — until this week, I might have to avoid it. We’ll see.
