The White Stripes will become the first band to perform on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Thursday, Dec. 1.

The band just completed a 40-date U.S. tour in support of new album Get Behind Me Satan.

“We've never had a musical performance on the show before -- not because we haven't wanted one, but because we were holding out for a reunited Spandau Ballet,” Stewart said in a prepared statement. “This will have to suffice.”
