The band has announced their third studio album, Fever Dream. The announcement comes after last week's release of a colorful lyric video for lead single "Alligator," a guitar-driven song with more of a rock sound than the band's previous work. The track will make its television debut when Of Monsters and Men performs on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" next Wednesday, May 15.
"We are so excited about 'Alligator,' the first release from our upcoming album," the band said in a press release. "The song very much speaks to the excitement and energy that we feel about being back. We can’t wait to share more music and see everyone again."
Frontwoman Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdóttir called the track "the odd one out" in a recent interview with NME.
"There are elements from that song throughout the album, but it’s kind of the black sheep in a way," she said.
Although a tour has not been announced yet, fans can catch the band live this summer as part of Las Vegas' Life Is Beautiful festival.
Fever Dream will be released July 26 but is available for pre-order now, including on limited-edition vinyl, with a different edition of the vinyl available every 16 days leading up to the release.
