sigur reddit Sigur Rós Discuss Album Plans, Band Updates, and Preview New Music

It’s always entertaining when a band decides to enter a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat; like remember Snoop Dogg’s Reddit interview where he admitted he smokes 81 blunts a day? So while Sigur Rós’ session didn’t unveil anything quite like that, it did reveal some exciting new details for their year ahead.

When asked when fans could expect a new album, the band replied that they were currently in the studio and planning to release their next record as soon as this year. They then went on to discuss structural changes in the group, stating that keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson has left the band, but still plans to compose on his own. Arguably most important though, was the moment when someone finally asked about the Shia LaBeouf music video, questioning “who’s idea was it to put Shia LaBeouf’s wang in the video?” to which they replied “I think it was probably his idea.” And there you have it.

Check out some new music from the band, previewed in the just released teaser video for their upcoming tour below, thanks to Pitchfork.
