Sigur Rós will follow up last year's Valtari with a new record this year. They're now signed to XL Recordings worldwide, who will release Kveikur on June 17 internationally and June 18 in the U.S.
As mentioned in January, the band says their new material is "more aggressive". The band is now a three-piece, following the departure of multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson.
Footage recently surfaced of Sigur Rós playing three new songs live, reportedly titled “Kveikur”, “Yfirborð”, and “Hrafntinna”.
