    Just 14 months after the release of Valtari, Sigur Rós will return with a new studio album: Kveikur will arrive June 18th through the band’s new label, XL Recordings. Described as “more aggressive” than their previous work, the latest entry marks the band’s seventh to date and first since the departure of multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson.

    In anticipation of the album’s release, the band has shared a video for the album track “Brennisteinn”, which you can watch below. Meanwhile, fan footage of the band performing three other album tracks, “Kveikur”, “Yfirborð”, and “Hrafntinna”, is streaming here.
