Back in 2017, Icelandic chamber pop band Of Monsters and Men announced plans to work on their third studio album following their run supporting Beneath The Skin. Fans were excited about the news and couldn't wait for the new material. During the past two years, though, fans were wondering if the band would ever unveil some new tunes.
Yesterday, the band decided to surprise everyone with a short clip of them in the studio. The video concludes with the word "Friday," which means fans can expect a brand new song from the band in a few days. With their recent tweets about alligators, this song might have something to do with those creatures.
A four-year gap between albums is nothing new for the band. Beneath The Skin was released four years after their 2011 debut studio album My Head Is an Animal. Their debut catapulted them into the limelight with platinum singles "Little Talks," "Mountain Sound," and "Dirty Paws." The release would eventually receive platinum status in the United States. With its debut at number three on the Billboard Top 200, Beneath The Skin is their highest charting album to date.
Of Monsters and Men are the first Icelandic band to have over one billion plays on Spotify. With 4.6 million monthly listeners on the streaming service, you can bet whatever new song they're dropping will gain colossal momentum.
