Sigur Rós Announce North American Dates

Sigur Rós Announce North American Dates
While Icelandic post-rock greats Sigur Rós will have their Valtari Film Experiment hitting Canadian cinemas later this year, fans may be more excited to learn that the band will be heading to North America to perform in the flesh come 2013.

The group's latest set of dates behind this year's Valtari have just been announced, and they include a few stops in Canada. Following some global dates, the band get back on North American soil in March, and will hit up Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto while they're here.

You can check the full details on the tour dates, the Canadian screenings, and a new video for "Valtari" down below.

UPDATE: As a special bonus, the band has now announced that every ticket purchased for the show will come with a free download of a new, three-song EP featuring "new and unreleased music." That download will be sent out March 22, but you can pre-order a ticket now.
