Members of one of Iceland’s biggest musical exports, the band Of Monsters and Men, are set to appear in the upcoming sixth series of Game of Thrones.

The highly-anticipated sixth series of the hit HBO television program is currently being filmed in Girona, Spain.

According to WatchersOnTheWall, one reader spotted the Icelandic band members Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, Arnar Hilmarsson and Ragnar Þórhallsson—all in costume—on-set in Spain and sent in photos as proof.

It is not yet known what part Of Monsters and Men are to play in Game of Thrones, but it is likely connected to music in some way. The show’s producers are known for sneaking some of their favorite musicians into the cast, some of whom (like Sigur Rós) write music for the show, while others simply act.

In an interview last year, Nanna said she and her bandmates are all obsessed with Game of Thrones.

Previous series have been partly recorded in Iceland, but the sixth series is not expected to be filmed here. Game of Thrones is among the most popular television series ever released.
