Of Monsters and Men
Thursday, June 4, 2020
with special guest Gordi
Touring in support of the Icelandic band’s third, recently released album, ‘Fever Dream,’ Of Monsters and Men’s last two top-10 albums cemented the group as one the most successful and exciting new alternative bands of the past decade.
It started when a radio station in Philadelphia began playing a demo of the song ‘Little Talks’ in 2011. The band was freshly formed, but the song became a smash hit and suddenly they were on the tip of every industry person’s tongue. Their debut album, ‘My Head is an Animal,’ quickly followed quickly went multi-platinum.
Thereafter, the band toured, developing a live reputation all over in huge venues and at massive festivals. After those explosive first years, the band retreated to Iceland to make their follow-up ‘Beneath the Skin.”
Their second album catapulted them around the world even more, contributed to Of Monsters and Men being the first Icelandic band ever to hit 1 billion streams on Spotify, and even earned them a cameo appearance on season six of Game of Thrones in 2016.
