DEAR MELBOURNE & AUSTRALIA,

SINCE WE FORMED SIGUR RÓS SOME TWENTY YEARS AGO, WE HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO VISIT AUSTRALIA SEVEN TIMES. WE’RE VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR EIGHTH VISIT THIS JULY.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR WORLDWIDE TOUR, PLAYING MORE THAN 130 SHOWS AND VISITING 39 COUNTRIES. ALONG THE WAY WE HAVE PLAYED SOME OF THE WORLD’S FINEST VENUES, AND WE’RE FINISHING WITH A RESIDENCE AT THE HARPA CONCERT HALL IN OUR HOME TOWN OF REYKJAVÍK, ICELAND AT THE END OF THIS YEAR.

OUR NEXT MELBOURNE SHOW IS SET TO TAKE PLACE ON JULY 27TH AT MARGARET COURT ARENA. OUR FANS AND FRIENDS HAVE MADE US AWARE OF RECENT COMMENTS BY MARGARET COURT REGARDING HER OPPOSITION TO QANTAS’S SUPPORT OF SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN AUSTRALIA, AND HER WIDER VIEWS ON RACE AND SEXUALITY.

ICELAND IS A COUNTRY WHERE SAME SEX PARTNERSHIPS HAVE BEEN RECOGNISED SINCE 1996, AND WHERE SAME SEX COUPLES HAVE ENJOYED THE SAME ADOPTION RIGHTS AS STRAIGHT COUPLES SINCE 2006. SAME SEX MARRIAGES WERE UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED IN OUR PARLIAMENT IN 2010 (OUR THEN PRIME MINISTER, JÓHANNA SIGURÐARDÓTTIR, WAS THE WORLD’S FIRST OPENLY GAY PM, AND ONE OF THE VERY FIRST ICELANDERS TO BE MARRIED UNDER THIS LEGISLATION). WE ARE ALSO HAPPY TO SAY THAT SINCE 2008 THE CHURCH OF ICELAND, AND ALL OTHER RELIGIONS, WERE OFFICIALLY GRANTED PERMISSION TO BLESS SAME SEX UNIONS.

WE KNOW MARGARET COURT’S OPINIONS ARE NOT SHARED BY THE MAJORITY OF AUSTRALIANS. WE WANT TO ADD OUR VOICE TO THE CALL FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY IN AUSTRALIA —RIGHT HERE ON MARGARET COURT ARENA ITSELF. AUSTRALIA SHOULD BE A COUNTRY THAT CELEBRATES POSITIVITY AND INCLUSION, AS WELL AS ACHIEVEMENT ON THE SPORTING FIELD.

WE’VE DECIDED TO COMMISSION A SPECIAL TEE-SHIRT FOR THIS MELBOURNE SHOW, WHICH WE’LL ALSO SELL AT OUR SYDNEY SHOW AND AT SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS, PROCEEDS FROM WHICH WILL GO TOWARDS SUPPORT OF AUSTRALIAN MARRIAGE EQUALITY.

LET’S MAKE JULY 27TH MARGARET COURT ARENA’S MOST INCLUSIVE NIGHT EVER AND CALL FOR EVERY AUSTRALIAN TO HAVE THE SAME DIGNITY AND RESPECT RIGHT HERE ON CENTRE COURT.

TAKK FYRIR,


SIGUR RÓS

 

Básicamente el día 27 de julio tocarán en Melbourne, Australia, y no en un estadio cualquiera. Margaret Court Arena toma el nombre de una antigua campeona de tenis local que este mismo año hizo unas declaraciones homófobas de no poca magnitud. Pues allí mismo apoyarán a la causa del respeto, derechos de personas al matrimonio de cualquier sexo.

Esta camiseta de edición especial recogerá fondos para el apoyo, se venderá en los días 23 (en el festival de música Splendour in the grass), 25 en el hordern pavilion  y 27 en los stands de merchandising. Aunque ahora se ha puesto a la venta a 45$ dólares australianos para ser vendidas por todo el mundo que le interese, recogiendo fondos.

Esta es la segunda colaboración que se conozca con Andrew Rae, diseñador británico que hace pocos meses colaboró con el diseño de la caja de los dulces infusionados con cannabis, a la venta en California con temática de la banda.

#sigurroslive Lord Jones, marca líder de cannabis en EEUU colabora con @sigurros para diseño y sabor de gominolas infusionadas

Estándar

 

sigur rós and leading cannabis brand lord jones have announced a collaboration: limited-edition, ‘wild sigurberry’ medicated gumdrops.

inspired by the flavors of foraged icelandic berries – wild blackberries, strawberries and blueberries – the collaborative ‘wild sigurberry’ gumdrops include a proprietary formulation of terpenes available in 5 dosage options: five, ten and twenty milligram thc infused, lord jones’ signature 5:1 ratio cbd to thc formulation, and a pure cbd option.

the limited-edition offerings come as a box of nine pieces bearing a sigur rós crest created by london-based illustrator andrew rae. the thc infused varieties will be sold online through the lord jones website and at select dispensaries throughout california to qualified medical marijuana patients, while the pure cbd version is available for nationwide delivery exclusively through the lord jones website.

in celebration of the ‘wild sigurberry’ gumdrops, sigur rós and lord jones will host a sound bath at hollywood’s neuehouse on tuesday april 18th. prior to the sound bath, attendees will have the opportunity to sample the lord jones x sigur rós gumdrops to enjoy a fully elevated experience. neuehouse will also feature other multimedia collaborations from the band, including moments in sound, film and vr.

 

Una colaboración cuanto menos curiosa. Lord Jones ofrece productos para pacientes con prescripción médica que así es posible (como en California) que tienen propiedades de cannabidiol, sin psicoativos pero con las características de calmantes, usos terapéuticos para dolores o ansiedades, trastornos, etc. La cuestión es que siendo sabores inspirados de Islandia (moras, bayas y arándanos) y nada menos que la música tan calmante como la del trío islandés para basarse en el diseño y tema de tales gominolas.

Diseñado por el ilustrador londinense Andrew Rae, decora con elegancia una especie de escudo con las “sílabas” de SI GU RR ÓS (algo que desde hace un tiempo recurren para logotipos la banda) rodeado de fauna islandesa como frailecillos o cuervos.

Además, el 18 de abril en Neuehouse, Hollywood, se podrá degustar tales dulces mientras se proyectan filmaciones o experiencias con VR y demás multimedia que también colabora la banda.
