Sigur Ros Play Kings of the Mountain Posted by Picasa

Sigur Ros have added a low-key intimate Los Angeles concert to the first leg of their upcoming world tour. This gig will be ideal for those Californians who would like to avoid the vastness of the Hollywood Bowl, where Sigur Ros will be playing in L.A. in October. Following the Hawaii concert, the band will head to Hollywood for a concert in the Avalon on Aug. 11.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale today, Thur. Jul. 7, on Ticketmaster. These tickets are otherwise only available to Sigur Ros mailing list and message board members exclusively. The password which you will need to provide in order to purchase tickets is: alafoss. Pre-sale tickets for the Aug. 11 Los Angeles concert can be purchased here.

On this tour, the band will be promoting their still-untitled album, which they have finished recording, mixing and mastering, and which is due for release in September. There are 11 tracks on the album, amounting to 65 minutes of music. Nine of these songs have never been heard before, "Gong" and "Milano" being the only familiar songs. "Salka" and other new songs were recorded but will not be featured on this release.
