Beneath The Skin (Deluxe Edition)
OF MONSTERS AND MEN first had the world talking in 2011 with their inescapable and infectious quadruple-platinum smash “Little Talks.” An engaging mix of anthemic indie and alternative, the Icelandic quintet’s critically praised full-length debut ‘My Head Is An Animal’ climbed to the top of the ARIA album chart and Billboard Top 200 and has sold over 2 million albums worldwide.
They have charmed TV audiences with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (twice), Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Graham Norton Show, and Saturday Night Live. In the midst of it all, they lent the single “Dirty Paws” to a trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and the iPhone 5 introduction video, while “Silhouettes” was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Fast forward to 2013. The group headed back home to Iceland to begin building the framework for their highly anticipated sophomore effort. Splitting studio sessions between Iceland and Los Angeles throughout 2014 and early 2015, Of Monsters and Men tapped Rich Costey [Muse, Foster The People, Interpol] to co-produce what would become their second full-length—Beneath The Skin.
The single “Crystals” heralds the album’s release. Propelled by gargantuan drums, resounding acoustic guitars, an orchestral hum, and a massive refrain, it’s a treasure in its own right.
The Deluxe Edition features 4 additional tracks.
