It seems wildly inappropriate to use the word "comeback" with someone who just turned 30 last summer, but that will happen when you were an indie rock child prodigy. Those don't come around very often, you know?
Sigur Ros recently did an interview with Q Magazine, where they discussed the band's upcoming album 'Valtari,' set for release on May 28.
