Of Monsters and Men Premier New Single, Announce Sophomore Album

Of Monsters and Men announced yesterday that their second album Beneath the Skin will be dropping June 9th.  To accompany this announcement, the Icelandic band also announced their world tour schedule, which will take them through North America and Europe. The tour begins in Toronto, ON, May 4th.  Of Monsters and Men will also visit a few festivals this summer, such as Sasquatch in Quincy, Washington and Squamish Valley Music Festival in Squamish, BC.
 
Perhaps the most exciting part of this announcement is the band’s first single off the album was also released. Titled “Crystals,” the single is the first new music we’ve heard from the group since 2011. It has all the classic Of Monsters and Men elements – a wide variety of instruments, floaty folk-pop vocals, and poetic lyrics. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
