Live from New York it's Tyler and Josh!

Twenty One Pilots are set to play the legendary comedy TV institution Saturday Night Live, performing as the musical guests on October 8th.

The episode will be hosted by Hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda and will see the boys play two songs interspersed between sketches.

Tyler and Josh announced their appearance via Twitter earlier today (September 28th).

We're not crying, you are!

Famous friends and fans have already expressed their congratulations including Hayley Williams of Paramore.

Performing on the live sketch show has always been viewed as a rite of passage for bands and the most recent season featured the likes of The 1975, Kanye West and Arianna Grande.

TØP's episode will air LIVE on NBC on October 8th.
