My buddy sent me text at 7 in the morning with this news taken as a screenshot from their facebook update. Even thought there's no set dates announced yet, this is the best news I could ever ask for. Chicago Theater please. It's been almost 4 years.

I will do anything to see this band. I hear they're life-changing live.

CoheedForever 02/08/12 11:00 AM

Absolutely have to see them live. Have to.

SLoT 02/08/12 11:05 AM

Will try to see.

More tour dates announced soon too! I hope everyone submits an email to receive updates,
I had read via last.fm about a April/May release on the album and a tour starting in August, we will see if this is true regardless this is very good news! Looking to hit up the anticipating NYC Shows!

Really excited about this. I've never seen them. I did see Jonsi on his solo tour though and that show was unreal. Really really really looking forward to this.

Saw em at red rocks and never has a concert left me in such an awe state. I can't stress enough how bad you need to see them.

Same, been waiting for four years plus to see them live, Jonsi solo show was something special I can't even imagine what the full band is like live.

they are, it has to be the closest thing to a spiritual experience that I've had at a concert.

Amazing.

I was so hoping they would play Coachella this year. Here's hoping to a miraculous late add?

Sloth7 02/08/12 12:32 PM

Excellent! Between the good news on Chi Cheng and this Sigur Ros news, it's turning out to be a great day.

Spencer Control 02/08/12 01:05 PM

Yay! I love this band. Didn't know they even took a break, but.

ghsNICK! 02/08/12 01:18 PM

Please come somewhere near me in the US

Alex_Burton 02/08/12 01:59 PM

I'm going to Iceland again in a few months. If I'm able to catch a hometown show, I will poop my pants!

dizzleforizzle 02/08/12 01:59 PM

doubt they'll come anywhere near me, but I'll make the drive. I need to see them.

That's great news

I hope they come to Utah; if not, I'll travel to the nearest place to see them if possible! Definitely my #1 band I want to see that I haven't yet.

Epilogueboy 02/10/12 10:30 AM

heck yes.
