What does Fred Armisen's 8G Band sound like?

Mere days before Seth Meyers assumes hosting duties on NBC's Late Night, a small snippet of the Armisen-helmed band was posted on the show's official Facebook page.

The 13-second preview shows Armisen and his 8G bandmates jamming on the Late Night set. It's not much, but it's something to whet appetites.

"Seth and I share the same taste in punk-rock music. We'd turn each other on to bands," Armisen recently told The Hollywood Reporter of his former SNL colleague Meyers.

Armisen added: "Questlove redefined what a band can be [on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon], and Paul Shaffer [of Late Show With David Letterman] and Max Weinberg [formerly of The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien] really put their own spin on it. I bow down to these people. All of them."

Watch a preview below.

 

Late Night With Seth Meyers premieres Feb. 24 on NBC.
