Sigur Ros announce March 2013 UK tour

Sigur Ros have announced a full UK tour for March next year.

The Icelandic band, who released their new album Valtari in May, will play five shows on the tour.

The dates begin at Glasgow SECC on March 2 and end on March 8, when the band play the second of two dates at London's O2 Academy Brixton. They will also play gigs at Manchester's O2 Apollo and Wolverhampton Civic Hall.

'Valtari' is the sixth release from the Icelandic band and the follow up to 2008's 'Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust', marking an end to their short-lived "indefinite hiatus".

The run of UK dates is part of a full European tour which will also see the band visit Portugal, Italy, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and France. The band are also booked to tour Australia later this year.

Sigur Ros will play:

Glasgow SECC (March 2)
