Of Monsters and Men first had the world talking in 2011 with their inescapable and infectious quadruple-platinum smash "Little Talks." An engaging mix of authentic indie and alternative, the Icelandic quintet's critically praised full-length debut "My Head Is An Animal" [Republic Records] climbed to the top of the Billboard Top 200 and has sold over 2 million albums worldwide.
Since then, the group has delivered rapturous performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, Osheaga, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Pukkelpop, and Splendour in the Grass as well as at countless sold out headline shows the world over.
They have charmed TV audiences with appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (twice), "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "The Graham Norton Show," and "Saturday Night Live." In the midst of it all, they lent the single "Dirty Paws" to a trailer for "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and the iPhone 5 introduction video, while "Silhouettes" was featured on "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" soundtrack.
Their highly anticipated sophomore effort, "Beneath The Skin," is set for release on June 9 and features the new single "Crystals." Propelled by gargantuan drums, resounding acoustic guitars, an orchestral hum, and a massive refrain, it's a treasure in its own right.
