    Nice one Chris! I just recently got their new album and quite like it; gobbledigook and festival especially.

    With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly! Enjoy the concert

    See you there

    This will be my third time, after seeing them @ Lowry and Apollo in Manchester a few years back.

    My all time fav band.

    Damn i'm away then, wonder if they're playing New Zealand

    I've been to see them three times they are absolutely fantastic live they put on an amazing show. The bowed guitar is so atmospheric live and you just can't believe the amount of different instruments they play.

    Pronounced "see-yor rouse" (apparently), they're an Icelandic post-rock group.

    You can listen to their new album here.

    Yes the G is silent it's the lead singers sisters name, they have some sound bites on the web site to help with pronounciation.

    They're very giving so you can hear quite a bit on the site.

    You will know their stuff without knowing them. They are used for loads of TV jingles as mood style music.

    Also going to Blackpool with the Mullett Man to see them.

    Yes that's right.

    Hoppípolla is probably their most popular TV ad track.
