Multiplatinum Icelandic quintet OF MONSTERS AND MEN share the official music video for their single "Alligator" today off of their upcoming third full-length album FEVER DREAM out July 26 via Republic Records/Universal Music.
On the breathtaking video and its imagery the band said: "We had a lot of fun shooting the music video for our song Alligator. It was two days of pure madness, battling the elements while shooting in Iceland and inside one of Iceland's most haunted hotels. Hope you like our Fever Dream
as much as we do (fire emoji)"
Speaking further on the single, co-lead vocalist Nanna
Hilmarsdóttir recently spoke to NME and WWD in-depth about the record. She details its themes of empowerment and the growth the band has had over the past few years as they continue to create music that inspires.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of "Little Talks." The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as "the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify," and landed the band a performance on Saturday Night Live. The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such asThe Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In addition to performing at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly, and beyond, they supported Florence + the Machine on a high-profile arena tour. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015's Beneath The Skin bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band starred in an episode of HBO's Game of Thrones in the same year.
