Sigur Rós announce new album and world tour for 2022

From Loudersound.

Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Rós have announced their first live dates for nearly five years. The band will take to the road in May and June to tour the US, Canada and Mexico as part of a lengthy world tour.

At the same time the band have announced they’re working on material for a new studio album, which will be the first since 2013’s Kveikur, although the band did release the soundtrack album Odin’s Raven Magic last year. Fans will be heartened by the news that multi-instrumentalist Kjartan “Kjarri” Sveinsson has rejoined the band and is working with founding members Jónsi and Georg Holm in the studio and will be performing on the tour. Sveinsson originally joined Sigur Rós in 1994 and left in 2013.

The band will be performing new material on the tour as well as from their 25-year back catalogue.
