    Sigur Rós have announced more tour dates, including a North American run. The band will be touring without a support act and playing two sets each night — one including brand new music. You can find the dates below.


    “Every time you go on tour you want it to be different…and every time it is, usually because you have a new album you want to play people. And that can be fun, because you have to work out how to recreate all the complicated stuff you did in the studio for the stage. But there was a time when things were the other way round, when we worked stuff out on the road, and trying to capture lightning in a bottle was a problem for the studio later on. This time, in addition to playing songs you know, we wanted to remember the seat-of-your-pants feeling experienced in the wake of ágætis byrjun, when for two years we formed and re-formed the songs that would go on to be the ( ) album live in front of people, night after night. All we can say right now is it’s going to be different, with new unreleased songs, a new show and maybe some other new things. Beyond that, we can only ask you to trust us on this one.”

    There are no answers. Only choices.

    Words fail to articulate how excited I am to see this group again.
