After their extremely chilled and ambient album, Valtari, Sigur Rós are apparently getting ready to channel Nine Inch Nails on a forthcoming album. They have a short but tantalizing video out called “Breakout” that not only reveals a more dark and aggressive side, but provides more visual interest in 90 seconds than all of their Valtari videos combined. Jónsi even looks like he’s actually strumming his guitar once, but don’t worry the bow is still there. There’s a 3-song EP coming and they’ve announced a North American tour beginning March 24 in D.C.
