Sigur Rós are thrilled to announce their biggest North American tour to date this spring. The trek, which includes a headlining show at New York City's prestigious Madison Square Garden, will be the most expansive Sigur Rós live experience yet. A pre-sale for fans will begin on Nov. 14 at 10 a.m.; tickets for the March 29, 2013, performance at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa will be available to the general public on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 10 a.m.

The band recently debuted a new song, "Brennisteinn," at this year's Iceland Airwaves Festival. CLICK HERE to watch footage of this incredible track, which was greeted with immediate praise upon being posted online.

"'Brennisteinn' ("Brimstone") was violent, rude and irresistible: slow, mourning rock with bass tones so low and loud they rattled the floor, cut with a stubbornly delicate romanticism," said Rolling Stone's David Fricke about the new track. "But just as the end seemed near and you expected the band to stomp off into their usual ether, the rhythm changed for the faster, with bassist Georg Holm and drummer Orri Páll Dyrason locking in a brisk, extended techno surge. Metal and dancing are the last things you expect at a Sigur Rós gig; both suit them. They should keep it up."
