Sigur Ros bin an album worth of material

Icelandic prog-rockers Sigur Ros have revealed that they've decided to bin almost an album's worth of new material.

Singer Jonsi Birgisson told SpinnerMusic that the band were close to finishing the follow-up to their 2008 album 'Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust' but have now decided to start from scratch.

'We haven't got another [Sigur Ros] album ready - It was just a rumour,' Birgisson said. 'We started to record something, but then we chucked it all away. So I think we are going to have to start it all again.'

When quizzed if the band were on hiatus the singer confirmed: 'Yes we are on a break at the moment. Everybody in the band is having babies.' However, Birgisson will release his debut solo album 'Go' on March 22.
