Live at the icelandic opera house will form part of a forthcoming deluxe vinyl box set edition of ágætis byrjun to follow later in the year.
The band commented:
newly mixed by the band’s kjartan sveinsson at sundlaugin studios, the 11-song set draws in equal amounts from ágætis byrjun and its 1997 predecessor von. it shows the band at a pivotal point in their development, a couple of months before they broke through on the international stage with the album’s first single, svefn-g-englar.
