Indie/folk band Of Monsters And Men have been making a lot of headway in the past couple of years; winning Iceland’s national battle of bands known as Músíktilraunir (roughly translating to “music experiments”) in 2010 to get the ball rolling. They followed up their triumph by getting international airplay with their single “Little Talks” from their Into The Woods EP (below) and landing a deal with a major label.

To solidify their presence on the world stage, the band has chosen April 3rd 2012 as the American release date for their debut album, My Head is an Animal, which will be released on Universal Republic. In support of their release they will be hitting the road, kicking things off in Austin, TX for SXSW (full schedule below).
