Things are getting musical in Westeros.

Game of Thrones has booked Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men for an appearance in the upcoming sixth season, E! News has confirmed. 

Word of the casting originally leaked by way of Twitter, as most things do, where fan photos of the band on the show's Girona, Spain set were posted. They were subsequently published on the Watchers of the Wall fan site. And now, here we are. 

The band's appearance marks the latest in a line of musical cameos from the show's famous fans. Coldplay's Will Champion, Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, Mastodon, and Icelandic trio Sigur Rós have all been drafted by GoT producers in the past.

The group's appearance shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to their fans. Earlier this year, lead singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir spoke with Interview magazine and revealed that the "Little Talks" crew is just as transfixed by the show as the rest of us. "Yeah, oh my god, we love it," she said. "We're all obsessed with Game of Thrones."

The band won't be the only new faces popping up in the new season of the HBO hit. unREAL star Freddie Stroma will make his debut as Dickon Tarly, Samwell's (John Bradley) brother, while Max von Sydow will take over the role of the Three-Eyed Raven and Ian McShane will appear in a mystery role.

Game of Thrones will return on HBO in spring 2016.
