The Strokes Playing John Mulaney-Hosted SNL On Halloween
During last night’s Adele-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live, the show revealed the musical guest for next week’s episode, which will air on Halloween. It’s The Strokes! The New York institution will appear opposite host John Mulaney, who is back for a second round of hosting this year after helming this past February’s David Byrne episode.
It’ll be the Strokes’ fourth time on the show following performances in 2002, 2006, and 2011. The band released their most recent album, The New Abnormal, back in April. Presumably they would have appeared on SNL around that time if the show had not gone on hiatus for the pandemic.
