Forget Ed Sheeran and his traveling band of whining Lannister minstrels, we’ve got the North of the Wall musical bosses over here.

Kristofer Hivju, who plays Tormund on the series, shared a video on Instagram of Jorah (Iain Glen), Beric (Richard Dormer), the Hound (Rory McCann), and himself jamming out to “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You” by Tom Waits. Filmed while they were on set for the “North of the Wall” episode, it’s an awesome peek into the many talents of our favorite Westerosi warriors. And best of all, Tormund even gave their bluegrass group a name: Brotherhood Without Banjos. That’s. Simply. Fantastic.


And luckily, all of these characters are still alive! Will we get to see them reunite on screen during season 8 with a lively tune? Unlikely, but if they do I’ll be there to buy their debut vinyl. Brotherhood Without Banjos. That’s seriously the coolest band name of all time.
