Another Round Of Sigur Rós Shows

It’s time for U.S. fans to extend another warm welcome to our favorite Icelandic post-rock band. Following its biggest North American tour ever this spring, Sigur Rós will be back in the states for more gigs in September.

The group’s website says the 2013 world tour features “a new live show, an 11-piece live band and new material.”

As for the new material, Sigur Rós’ seventh studio album, Kveikur, is due out June 18 in the U.S.
