!! OMG, Jónsi releases new vid, announces US tour !!


Icelandic rock star Jónsi is bringing his unique brand of whimsical thrash pop back to American shores this fall in support of his debut solo project Go. For a taste of what to expect from the Sigur Ros front man’s live experience, check out his recently-released video “Animal Arithmetic”, which emphasizes the singer’s penchant for percussive insanity as well his deep love of confetti through a series of close-up camera shots.
Unfortunately we missed Jónsi’s first go-around back in the spring, but apparently it won rave reviews because he’s assembled several choice pull-quotes for the official tour trailer (below). Full list of dates after the jump!

  1. So disappointed there isn’t a return to T.O. date, yet. At this point, I’m damn tempted to find a way to Detroit on a Friday night.
