Sigur Rós are thrilled to announce their biggest North American tour to date this
spring. The trek, which includes a headlining show at New York City’s prestigious Madison Square
Garden, will be the most expansive Sigur Rós live experience yet. A pre-‐sale for fans will begin
on November 14th at 10 am EST; tickets will be available to the general public on November 16th and
November 17th at 10 am EST (check local venues for exact date/time).
The band recently debuted a new song, “Brennisteinn,” at this year’s Iceland Airwaves Festival.

being posted online.
“’Brennisteinn’ (“Brimstone”) was violent, rude and irresistible: slow, mourning rock with bass
tones so low and loud they rattled the floor, cut with a stubbornly delicate romanticism,” said
Rolling Stone’s David Fricke about the new track. “But just as the end seemed near and you expected
the band to stomp off into their usual ether, the rhythm changed for the faster, with bassist Georg
Holm and drummer Orri Páll Dyrason locking in a brisk, extended techno surge. Metal and dancing are
last things you expect at a Sigur Rós gig; both suit them. They should keep it up.”
