Sigur Ros Announce New Album
Sigur Rós have announced that they will release a new studio album, Kveikur, on June 18. The band has also unveiled a video for their new song “Brennistein,” which appears on the forthcoming record. Kveikur was produced by the members of Sigur Rós, and the album reportedly sees the band shift toward a more aggressive sound. It will be the the group’s first project since longtime member Kjartan Sveinsson’s departure, and their seventh album with XL Recordings.
Sigur Rós will be headlining Madison Square Garden tomorrow night. The band is currently in the middle of a world tour that will take them across the United States and Canada before they head to Japan and Europe.
