Entertainmwent Weekly reports that Icelandic band Sigur Ros is set to appear on season four of HBO's Game of Thrones. Jón Þór "Jónsi" Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting their appearance on the set in Coratia.
Series showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are fans of the band and would often listen to their music while shooting in Iceland, one of several countries used in production of the show.
In the past, the series has had The National and The Hold Steady perform songs inspired by lrics in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire saga ("The Rains of Castamere" and "The Bear and Maiden Fair," respectively). Both songs were used on the show's soundtracks. Members of Snow Patrol and Coldplay have had guest appearances.
Sigur Ros appeared on The Simpsons last season and are set to begin their US tour. Thrones, meanwhile, returns in the spring.
