Icelandic chamber folksters Of Monsters and Men dropped by The Anthem recently, and Paivi Salonon got all the pix.

Of Monsters and Men released Fever Dream, a new studio album, on July 26. On Twitter at the time, the band said, “We are so excited to share with you our third album ‘FEVER DREAM.’ It’s heavily influenced by being unafraid of expressing yourself. It’s about yearning for something greater, embracing your vulnerability and wanting to feel present in a moment.”

On Sept. 4, they performed at The Anthem in celebration of the new record. They opened the show with the new single “Alligator” and dedicated half of the 20-song set to Fever Dream. Many Fever Dream songs made their live debut, including “Ahay,” “Under a Dome,” “Stuck in Gravity,” “Soothsayer,” and “Rororo.” In the encore, Of Monsters and Men debuted “Waiting for the Snow” and “Sleepwalker.”

Of Monsters And Men releaesed their debut album, My Head Is an Animal, in 2011, producing the international hit “Little Talks.” That song appeared toward the end of the main set at The Anthem.

The band remains on tour in North America through Sept. 28, when they close in Vancouver.
