What're they putting in the water in Reykjavik?
Icelandic ambient post-rock band Sigur Ros seem to have discovered the elixir for eternal youth. For a band that's been around nearly 20 years, their output volume and touring stamina is pretty insane -- not to mention their ability to stay relevant.
Last year, Sigur Ros embarked on a tour trailing the release of their sixth studio album, Valtari, and the band have just announced that it will continue with a final leg of U.S. tour dates following next week's release of its hard-rocking successor, Kveikur (out June 18).
The band makes its final stop at Miami's Bayfront Park on October 9, rounding out a full 18 months of touring. Check out the full schedule below, and watch the official music video for "Kveikur," created exclusively from live show visuals.
