The Lumineers To Perform On Saturday Night Live On January 19th 2013

Grammy-nominated band The Lumineers will be the musical guests on Saturday Night Live on January 19, hosted by Jennifer Lawrence

The band's Grammy-nominated self-titled debut album (nominated for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album) continues to gain momentum on the charts, finally cracking the Billboard Top 10 last week with over 61,000 copies sold. The album has sold almost 700,000 copies since its release last April by Dualtone, almost always selling more records each week than the previous week. 

The album is anchored by the band's popular first single "Ho Hey" which has just gone double-platinum, and is quickly moving towards triple platinum with the band selling over 300,000 copies last week alone with a running total of nearly 2,400,000 copies sold. This accomplishment comes only weeks after the song went platinum, which was just over 6 months in the making, with the band selling on average 50 thousand copies of the song every week since its release. 

The Lumineers are the first independent label artist to have a debut single reach #1 at three separate formats--Triple A, Alternative & Hot AC. "Ho Hey" spent eight weeks at #1 at Triple A radio and two weeks at #1 at Alternative Radio. The song is currently #1 on Billboard's Rock Chart and #4 on the Hot 100. The debut album and "Ho Hey" were both #1 at Spotify for some time in December, and are currently sitting at #2 on the music streaming service. 

The band's second single "Stubborn Love" is following in the footsteps of its predecessor. "Stubborn Love" is currently sitting at #1 at AAA Radio, and is Top 20 at Alternative radio. 

The band are preparing to hit the road in the US for some dates on the east coast, all of which sold out almost instantly. World-wide, the band is selling out every date they play. See below for complete itinerary.

That’s great news about the Lumineers making an appearance on Saturday Night Live. They are slowly becoming one of my favorite new bands after one of my DISH coworkers introduced them to me late last year. I just started working nights so I set a timer for new episodes of SNL on my DISH Hopper.. My DVR holds up to 2,000 hours of programming so I can record and store episodes of SNL and watch them at my own pace.
