Following the tantalising release of their teaser video last week which hinted at a “surprise film event” (watch it below), Sigur Rós have announced the details of their forthcoming project. Entitled Inni (‘Inside’ in Icelandic), the “event” will consist of a live film as well as a double live album.
The artsy concert film, shot at London’s Alexandra Palace and twice re-filmed by director Vincent Morisset , will cover the band’s last show before they went on hiatus in 2008. Stripped of their usual string accompaniment, from long-time collaborators Amiina , this was a rare performance from the Icelandic band, and Inni will make the most of this fact by also including a double album, containing an hour and forty five minutes of recorded material from the performance.
Inni (the film) will debut at the Venice Film Festival on the 3rd September.
