Following the announcement of tour dates in the United States, Mexico and Canada last month, Sigur Rós have now confirmed a lengthy run in the UK and Europe.

Kicking off in Portugal on 28 September, the run of shows will take place in Italy, Germany and France before arriving in the UK for four shows, including two nights at London’s Brixton Academy. The band will then finish off with a homecoming gig in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale 9am GMT, Friday March 18 from here.

According to a press release, Sigur Rós are in the process of writing and recording their first new studio album since 2013’s ‘Kveikur’ and will air new songs at the shows, alongside material drawn from their acclaimed 25 year discography.

Earlier this year, the band also confirmed that founding members Jónsi and Georg Holm will be joined in the studio and on tour by former member Kjartan Sveinsson, who is rejoining the band almost a decade after stepping away to focus on other projects.
