(Radio.com) The Head and the Heart not only contributed their new single "All We Ever Knew" to Cameron Crowe's new dramedy, Roadies, they actually ended up playing a role in the Showtime series.

The show about behind-the-scenes concert personnel officially premieres Sunday night at 10:00 pm with the band set to appear in episodes 1 and 2. The band describes their experience on the set, watching in awe as Luke Wilson improvises and the Academy Award-winning Crowe directs.

"Our role is--we're the opening band for this made up fake band that's the headlining act of the show," explains pianist Kenny Hensley. "And we've apparently become more popular after agreeing to do the tour so we don't really want to be there. We want to be headlining our own gigs so we're just frustrated and annoyed and our tour manager is pissed off."

Crowe has the band playing pranks on the headlining act in order to get themselves kicked off the tour. They leave the tour though before getting kicked off, fictionally joining Neil Young's European dates. "The guys who's the tour manger for our band in the show is actually Neil Young's real tour manager," says Jonathan Russell. "So there's all kind of really cool connections and parallels."
