Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men released Fever Dream, the groups third studio album, in July via Republic Records. Of Monsters and Man arrives at The Anthem on The Fever Dream Tour on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Of Monsters and Men preceded the record’s arrival with a pair of rising singles. Not only did “Alligator” recently cross the 6 million thresholds on Spotify, but it also made history by completing “their quickest climb to #1 on the Adult Alternative Songs Airplay Chart,” as reported by Billboard. Not only has the song held the #1 spot for two weeks and counting but has vaulted to Top 5 at Alternative radio. Recently, Q Magazine praised it as saying, “Fever Dream is a dizzying rush of exuberance and emotion… their transformation into an arena-ready pop beast is complete.”

In a review for AllMusic, Neil Z. Yeung says of Monsters and Men have undergone “a reinvigorating change of pace that gives the band a shimmering synthpop makeover.”
“Since each track is so distinctive, the album is compulsively listenable, offering something new to discover around every corner. With Fever Dream, Of Monsters and Men took a chance and rediscovered their creativity, embarking in a colorful and bold direction without sacrificing their heart and soul in the process,” Neil wrote.
