2013 EU issue on vinyl 2LP+ download edition-Kveikur is the seventh full-length from Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós and follow-up to 2012's Valtari. The band’s first release on XL Recordings worldwide, the 9-song set was self-produced by the three members of Sigur Rós: Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason, and sees the band shifting towards a more direct, aggressive sound.

Kveikur is also the first album by Sigur Rós without founding member Kjartan Sveinsson who left the band in early 2013. Featuring the singles, "Brennisteinn" and "Ísjaki." Gatefold 2LP-set with bonus 10" vinyl disc and MP3 coupon.

Bassist Georg, explains: "As a band we always write the music first and listen to it later to work out what it might be about. That's how we come up with the words, by approaching the music without preconceptions and seeking meaning that was hidden from us at the point of creation. The music tells us what it is about.”

"This is an album no-one anticipated Sigur Rós would make. This is a band whose frontman now scores Hollywood films (Cameron Crowe’s We Bought A Zoo), whose household name status was confirmed when they recently cameoed on The Simpsons, who in recent years have dealt more in bright, bouncy orchestral indie (2008’s Arcade Fire-ish ‘Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust’) than the dark experimental fare they made their name with. So ‘Kveikur’ comes as a violent but welcome surprise." - Al Horner, NME
