Of Monsters and Men Info
Icelandic folkie pop group Of Monsters and Men is fast becoming a major breakout act all around the world. As winners of Iceland’s Músiktilraunir competition in 2010, the group earned a slot on the influential Iceland Airwaves festival that same year. By the summer of 2011, the single "Little Talks,” off their debut album My Head Is An Animal, hit No. 1 in the band’s native country, and started to move its away across the world. The group was asked to perform again at Iceland Airwaves 2011, where influential US college radio station KEXP anointed them as “easily the most buzzed about band" on the bill.
After a huge year, My Head Is An Animal was officially certified platinum worldwide by the RIAA. Surpassing one million sales, the record remains a clarion call for the band's inimitable, intimate, and invigorating style. It's also ignited a string of milestones for the group. Supporting the success behind My Head Is An Animal, including a #6 debut on Billboard Top 200 chart, 2012 also saw Of Monsters and Men tour the world, playing sold out shows in Japan, Australia, Europe, United Kingdom, and all across the United States. The band capped off the year with “Little Talks” selling over 3.5 million singles worldwide, the album reaching Platinum status in Canada and Ireland, as well as Gold in multiple countries including Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States. With 2013 in full swing, Of Monsters and Men is on the road with no sign of slowing down, their star steady on the rise.
