Icelandic group Sigur Ros will follow up an in-progress European tour with a round of North American shows, along with other international gigs.

The atmospheric alt-rockers will next take the stage March 7-9 in London for three consecutive nights, after which the trio will head stateside, kicking the North American dates with a March 23 performance in Fairfax, VA. The 19-city trek, which includes two appearances (4/13, 4/20) at Indio, CA's Coachella Festival, concludes April 19 in Santa Barbara, CA.

A run through Japan is set for mid-May, followed by a couple of West Coast gigs. Sigur Ros then returns to Europe for another round of shows.

Sigur Ros unveiled "Valtari," Icelandic for "Steamroller," in May 2012. The album, which was produced by the group alongside Alex Somers, marks the band's sixth studio set and the follow-up to 2008's "With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly." The collection debuted at No. 8 on the U.K. Albums chart and at No. 7 on The Billboard 200.
