Sigur Rós Post Screening Dates And Pre-Orders For New Live Documentary "Inni"

After a hiatus that seemed like it would go on forever and an impressive solo effort from frontman Jónsi, it looked like we wouldn't be hearing a whole lot from Icelandic post-rock legends Sigur Rós. It was a sad situation, to be sure; I've been a fan of the ethereal, almost supernatural sounds they produce for quite some time. However, back in August, they release a short, ambiguous, black-and-white trailer for something called "INNI" and left absolutely no information as to what it might be, leaving fans to what and wonder just what the hell was going on.

Well, the wait is over. The band has since announced that "INNI" will be a live album/concert film bundle showcasing footage from their two-night stand at the Alexandra Palace in London back in November of 2008. The 75-minute documentary is directed by Vincent Morisset, who also helmed Arcade Fire's spectacular "Miroir Noir", and comes with a 2-CD live album from the same performance. The bundles will be released on November 7th in Europe and 15th in the USA and are currently available for pre-order on the band's website.
