Sigur Rós will hit the road this summer for their first world tour in nearly five years, with shows currently slated for the United States, Canada and Mexico. The influential Icelandic band also announced that they’ve returned to the studio to record a new full-length album — and both the album and tour will feature the Kjartan Sveinsson, who recently rejoined Sigur Rós after leaving the group nearly a decade ago.
The post-rock outfit promises to debut some new material during the upcoming tour, which kicks off April 30 at Festival Vaivén in Morelos, Mexico. The run will continue through May before wrapping with two shows at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, June 17 and 18.
Tickets for the U.S. and Canada shows go on sale Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. local time, while the Mexico shows will go on sale at 11 a.m. Feb. 26. Additional tour dates to be announced at a later date. More information can be found on the band’s website.
The album, meanwhile, will mark the first proper Sigur Rós studio effort since 2013’s Kveikur. In 2020, the group released Odin’s Raven Magic, an orchestral piece based off a 13th century Icelandic poem — but the composition was first performed nearly two decades prior to its official release, and the 2020 version came from a recording of a 2004 performance at La Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris.
