After already hinting a quick follow-up to last year’s Valtari in a recent interview, SIGUR RÓS have now confirmed their new studioalbum Kveikur. It will be released via XL Recordings on June 17 internationally and one day later in the US. The new material is supposed to sound heavier and way more aggressive than the previous record. NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION already witnessed some of these songs on SIGUR RÓS recent Berlin show. The Icelandic band also shares the video for Brennisteinn today, a first song from the new longplayer which was already previewed before. Watch it right here.
