In 2022, the band embarked on a world-tour and celebrated the return of keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson after a decade’s absence.
The Icelandic post-rock band started their tour in Mexico City on April 28, where they opened their 20-song set with ‘Svefn-g-englar’, marking the first time they’ve played the track since 2013.
Later in the set, they premiered ‘Gold 2’, ‘Gold 4’ and ‘Angelus 4’ – all new tracks which are yet to be released.
In a statement last February, Sigur Rós revealed that they were “in the process of writing and recording” a new LP.
Their seventh and most recent record, ‘Kveikur’, came out back in 2013. The band shared their ‘Odin’s Raven Magic’ orchestral project in late 2020.
In October, the band announced a 20th anniversary reissue of their third studio album, ‘( )’. The new edition of the 2002 record was remastered by engineer Ted Jenson, and contains B-sides and previously unreleased demos.
