Late night talk show host David Letterman loves him some bands with Knoxville connections. (To be fair … he loves music, period, or at least the people who book his musical acts do.) On Feb. 2, The Boxer Rebellion — fronted by Maryville native Nathan Nicholson — performed on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Now comes word from Motormouth Media, the publicity company representing Knoxville three-piece indie rock outfit Royal Bangs, that the Bangs will be the musical guests on Letterman on April 1.

That’s the week the band’s new album, “Flux Outside,” drops. We reviewed that here.

UPDATED: The Bangs will actually be on “Letterman” on April 1, not March 28.
