Sigur Ros in Philly last Sunday (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Sigur Ros are back this year with a new album, Valtari, and their first US tour in four years, which kicked off in Philly over the weekend. Pictures and the setlist from that show are HERE. That tour brings the band to NYC tonight (7/31) for a sold out show at Prospect Park, which like the Philly show, Perfume Genius will open. If you weren't able to get tickets for tonight's show, NPR will be streaming it live and you can watch from the comfort of your own home.
Sigur Ros are also continuing their Mystery Film Experiment. The last video in that series to come out was the MFE version of "Eg Anda," earlier this month, and they just revealed a new one today (7/31) for their song "Varuo." The next video will premiere on August 13. You can watch those two recent ones below.
In related news, Alcest is working on his new LP in Sigur Ros' studio with Birgir Jón Birgisson (aka Biggi), who produces Sigur Ros' albums as well.
Videos are below.
