Mudhoney’s Dan Peters Sits-In as Guest Drummer for Late Night with Seth Meyers’ 8G Band February 5-8

February 5th through 8th, catch legendary skinsman Dan Peters of famed rock outfit Mudhoney on live tele-tube and streaming beams sitting in with the 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC. 

Peters joins a long line of world-class drummers who have sat behind band leader/comedian Fred Armisen’s drum kit on Meyers’ NBC late-night show since 2015. Each week, the 8G Band welcomes a gifted player to join the band to play the show’s themes, compose original music for guest walk-ons and commercial breaks, and keep the overall energy of the studio audience elevated throughout the taping.

2023 was a banger year for the one and only Mudhoney, who released their mind-melting album Plastic Eternity on Sub Pop. They toured extensively throughout Australia & North America, and April 7th was declared Mudhoney Day in King County, WA. The official proclamation highlighted their contributions to the Seattle music scene and beyond, crediting them for “35 years of brilliant musical mayhem.”

Additionally, the band found themselves wreathed in year-end accolades on Louder Than War, Uproxx, and Aquarium Drunkard lists, this last of which described Plastic Eternity as, “Wild, spiraling psychedelia, sharp-toothed political commentary, potty humor, dogs—this 11th album from Mudhoney has it all. Dive into the third-eye opening ‘Almost Everything,’ with its unhinged squall, chuckle grimly to word-playing ‘Cry Me an Atmospheric River,’ or enjoy a full-on belly laugh to sardonic but meaning-it ‘Little Dogs.’ These punk grunge founding fathers aren’t done yet.”

Mudhoney is hard at work plotting some exciting news for 2024, so stay close, follow along, and set your DVRs for February 5th to watch Dan tear it up on late-night TV. 

Late Night With Seth Meyers airs weeknights on NBC at 12:35 AM EST/PST. Stream current and past episodes on Peacock.
