Of Monsters and Men
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 indie, folk, and alternative, the Icelandic quintet’s critically acclaimed full-length debut My Head Is An Animal [Republic Records] climbed to the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold over 2 million albums worldwide.
Since then the group have delivered revered 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 around the world.
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.
Fast forward to 2013, when the group headed back home to Iceland to begin building the framework for their highly anticipated sophomore album. Splitting
studio sessions between Iceland and Los Angeles throughout 2014/early 2015, Of Monsters and Men tapped Rich Costey [Muse, Foster The People, Interpol] to co-produce. Eyeing an early summer 2015 release, they return to the road in the spring. Be on the lookout for more from the band very soon as their story expands further.
