Sigur Ros Streaming New Album and Announce New Tour Leg

Sigur Ros are giving fans an advance listen to their entire new album with an online stream and have also announced a North American tour that will take place this fall.

The band won't be releasing their new album, Kveikur, until next Tuesday ( June 18th) but they have teamed up with Amazon to provide fans will a full album stream that you can check out here..

The band doesn't only want fans to listen to the advance stream of Kveikur, have asked fans to share their reaction to it by posting photos, drawings, and more on their social media pages with the hashtag #kveikur detailing what they imagine in their heads while listening to the new album.

Bassist Georg Holm had this to say, "As a band we always write the music first and listen to it later to work out what it might be about. That's how we come up with the words, by approaching the music without preconceptions and seeking meaning that was hidden from us at the point of creation. The music tells us what it is about."

Sigur Ros have spent the past year on a global tour and have announced plans to launch the final leg of the campaign with a 20-date North American tour.

The new North American dates will kick off with the band's headline appearance at this year's Laneway Festival in Detroit on September.
