If you thought The Simpsons had traveled to every Western country imaginable over the course of 24 seasons, then you forgot about Iceland. How dare you!

America's premier cartoon family will head to the Nordic island on the May 19 season finale, where they'll reportedly meet up with 'toon versions of Sigur Ros. At the very least, it's confirmed that the post-rockers have composed music specifically for the episode. Which, obviously, is incredible.

How their music plays into The Simpsons world is anyone's guess. Will there be an ambient-soundtracked couch gag? Will Lisa tackle a guitar using a cello bow? Only one way to find out—Google it the day after it airs. Or, I guess, you could actually watch it on May 19.
