Of Monsters and Men Announce ‘Fever Dream’ Album Release Date


First single "Alligator" is out now.

Icelandic pop quintet Of Monsters and Men announced the release date for their upcoming third album, Fever Dream, on Tuesday (May 7). The collection, co-produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Vampire Weekend), is due July 26, five years after the release of their second album, 2015's Beneath the Skin. Fans who pre-order the album now will get a link to the rousing single, "Alligator."

"Alligator," which dropped last week, was written by co-vocalist Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdóttir, who takes on lead vocals on the driving, percussion-heavy track. "We are so excited about 'Alligator,' the first release from our upcoming album," the band said in a statement about the empowerment anthem that name checks the album's title. "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."

Fans can order one of the exclusive limited-edition vinyl copies of the album on the group's website now. OMAM will make the TV debut of "Alligator" on The Tonight Show on may 15.
