Have no fear, The Roots will also be a part of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. As Pitchfork points out, band leader and drummer Questlove confirmed the news with Fuse, stating: “The Tonight Show is coming to us; we’re not going to The Tonight Show…it’s going to be the same show. But that’s a year from now,” adding, “Yeah, we’re staying [with Jimmy].” Watch the clip below.

As previously reported, Fallon will replace Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show by late 2014, with the late night program moving back to New York City for the first time since since 1972.
