Sigur Ros Plot New Album for June Release


Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros have announced plans to release a new studio album, Kveikur, on June 18. The record is their seventh overall and first since signing to XL Recordings. It is also the first new project since the departure of longtime member Kjartan Sveinsson late last year.

To celebrate the news, the band has released the official Andrew Huang-directed music video for the song "Brennisteinn" off the new album, which was self-produced by Jón Þór "Jonsi" Birgisson, Georg "Goggi" Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason.

In the meantime, the band is on the verge of kicking off their headlining North American tour, which includes dates in NYC, Boston, Detroit, Chicago and more. Click here for a full list of confirmed tour dates.
