Want to hear Sigur Ros perform "The Rains of Castamere," from the popular and bloody HBO show Game of Thrones? Of course you do, because you love Icelandic post-rock bands diving headlong into a world of medieval backstabbing and intrigue! Check out the creepy tune in the replies.

Sigur Ros will be performing "The Rains of Castamere" for Game of Thrones this year.

The members of Sigur Ros will appear on Game of Thrones this season. No word on what they will be doing on the show.
Thrones has landed Icelandic art-pop sensation Sigur Rós to appear in season four. Jón Ţór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting an appearance on the Thrones set in Croatia. What will the band mates do? Will they play a song? Might a bowed guitar be involved?

Sigur Ros released the official video for "Eg Anda" today, produced by a filmmaker outside of the band. This was done to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow the filmmaker utmost creative freedom.
