Your sad friend's favorite Icelandic softy band, Sigur Rós, announced today that they'll be releasing a new record called Kveikur on June 18. To build anticipation until a fever pitch of dudes in hoodies with their hands in their pockets storm independent record stores with velcro wallets, the band has released a new video for the song “Brennisteinn,” which will appear on the record. It's around 8 minutes long and most of it looks like a hybrid of a Gatorade commercial and scenes from that movie 300. It's cool, if you're into that kind of thing.

The band is on tour all over and they're on Jimmy Fallon tonight, Madison Square Garden on Monday. Check the rest of the tour dates below. And get pumped on electrolytes.
