Sigur Rós are now streaming their seventh album in full on Amazon, a week before its official release. The Icelandic trio have already shared a number of songs from the fast-approaching Kveikur, out June 18 via XL Recordings: the doomy title track, the lurching "Brennistein," and the twinkling "Ísjaki." Now fans can hear all nine tunes that compose the "more aggressive" follow-up to 2012's Valtari. As SPIN reported earlier, this latest effort marks the band's first since the departure of multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson. The post-rock unit's three remaining members — Jón "Jónsi" Þór Birgisson, Orri Páll Dýrason, and Georg Hólm — will promote the apocalyptic Kveikur with a tour spanning Europe and North America from June to November. Listen to the entire LP here. The end is nigh.
