Sigur Ros at Skyline Stage 7/29/2012
Sugur Ros

Sigur Ros's played the Skyline Stage in Philadelphia last night (7/29). The show marked the Sigur Ros's return to the US as part of a tour that hits a sold-out Prospect Park tomorrow (7/31), the US indoctrination of their new LP Valtari, as well as the inaugural show at the new Skyline Stage at The Mann Center (they also bless that stage tonight). Perfume Genius, who is on tour with the Icelandic crew, supported last night and will again tonight. In celebration of the event, the venue gave away collectible cards featuring Sigur Ros. Check out one of those cards below alongside more pictures from the show and the setlist.

In interesting Sigur Ros related news, the band's producer, Birgir Jón Birgisson, will produce the new Alcest LP:

"Hello there! Some days ago Winterhalter and I recorded demos for the next Alcest album, for which I have almost finished the songwriting. Only a few arrangements are missing, and the lyrics as well... In our case they always come late in the process... I feel very excited about these songs and this new approach feels very refreshing to me. I also can tell that the album will be recorded next March in Iceland at Sundlaugin, Sigur Rós' studios, with producer Birgir Jón Birgisson. There will also be guests appearances - more infos about this will come later. I will keep you posted!" -[Neige of Alcest]
Very interesting.

That trading card, pictures and the setlist are below.
