Never a band to do things by halves, Iceleandic experimental rockers Sigur Rós have announced the release of their seventh studio album, Kveikur. This record follows just over a year after they released Valtari and will be released by XL Recordings on June 18. Along with the news, the band also released a new video from the forthcoming record.

“Brennisteinn” is an ominous, dark clip shot through with violent imagery and a reappearing strand of yellow in an otherwise black and white clip. Watch the video below and check out the new record’s track list, their tour dates and album artwork below. Also look for their performance tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
