Kveikur set for release in June; have a look at new track Brennistein and tour dates below

Sigur Rós have announced that they'll be releasing their new album, Kveikur (artwork above), on June 17.

It's their seventh album, and their first since signing to XL. Self-produced, it's also their first as a three-piece, following the departure of multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson, confirmed in January. We've got a taster of what to expect with the Andrew Huang-directed video for album cut 'Brennistein' - have a watch below:
