STONE SOUR's ROY MAYORGA Set For 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' Guest Stint

STONE SOUR drummer Roy Mayorga will hold down the drum chair on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" from Monday, August 14 through Thursday, August 17. His guest stint in THE 8G BAND, the show's house group led by "Portlandia" star Fred Armisen, follows briefs residencies by other leading rock drummers, including Danny Carey of TOOL, Tim Alexander of PRIMUS, Nicko McBrain of IRON MAIDEN, Abe Cunningham of DEFTONES and Charlie Benante of ANTHRAX.

"Late Night With Seth Meyers" is home to A-list celebrity guests, memorable comedy and topical monologue jokes. It is hosted by Emmy Award-winning writer Seth Meyers, who was one of 2014's Time 100 Most Influential People and named to Variety's 2016 New Power of New York list. Previously, Meyers served as head writer on "Saturday Night Live" and anchor on the show's wildly popular "Weekend Update".

An established comedian, Meyers is known for his perfectly-timed wit and off-the-cuff satire. According to Salon, Meyers is "one of the most important political voices on television" and Vanity Fair called "Late Night" "one of television's most intellectually curious talk shows." Meyers's fellow "Saturday Night Live" cast member and friend Fred Armisen serves as music director/drummer for the house band, THE 8G BAND with Fred Armisen.

From Universal Television and Broadway Video, "Late Night With Seth Meyers" is executive-produced by Lorne Michaels ("The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", "Saturday Night Live") and produced by Michael Shoemaker ("Late Night With Jimmy Fallon", "Saturday Night Live").

STONE SOUR is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Hydrograd", which was released on June 30 via Roadrunner Records. The disc was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX and STEEL PANTHER.
