Sigur Rós preps for latest album and tour

Sigur Rós graced Reddit with its awkward presence Thursday, discussing and answering questions about its seventh and latest LP (which has yet to be named). A preview of the band's dark new material is available below.

The band is also prepping for a world tour that will begin on Feb. 13—a tour it will complete as a trio, seeing as keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson left the group because he'd "spent half his life in the band and it was time to do something different."
