Last month in a Reddit AMA Sigur Ros confirmed that longtime keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson has left the band for good. They’d hinted that they were working on more “aggressive” new material, and now they’ve debuted 3 new songs, which you can watch below.
Sigur Ros is also beginning a worldwide tour through July, with US festival dates at Coachella and Sasquatch. On their site, they say the only way to see the new material outside these “crappy” YouTube videos is to see them in person. Watch the new material below and click over to Consequence of Sound for the full tour schedule.
