Of Monsters and Men unveil their new TÍU EP via Republic Records featuring new single “Lonely Weather”. You can watch the song’s video below.
This release arrives on the heels of the world premiere of their TÍU short documentary at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. To celebrate the premiere, the band took the stage and performed three tracks from the EP, also featured in the doc.
Aside from “Lonely Weather”, the EP includes fan favorites including “This Happiness,” “Destroyer,” and “Visitor,” which have cumulatively tallied over 20 million total streams and counting.
The TÍU documentary was directed by their friend Dean DeBlois (Heima, Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon) and follows the band on a trip around their homeland of Iceland. Their world tour was cut short due to the pandemic and instead of celebrating in big venues and headlining festivals- they performed their new songs together in special locations around Iceland that are meaningful to the five of them.
The band also released ‘The Cabin Sessions’, which recently premiered on YouTube. At the end of filming TÍU, they recorded a stripped down performance of My Head Is An Animal in it’s entirety at a cabin in Iceland. ‘The Cabin Sessions’ premiered last night on YouTube, and the band also hosted a small fundraiser on platform for World Central Kitchen, an organization that provides fresh meals to refugees.
Adding to the accolades earlier this year, Of Monsters and Men released the official vinyl for their My Head Is An Animal (10th Anniversary Edition) which celebrates a decade of their critically acclaimed platinum debut album. The anniversary edition includes two previously unreleased tracks and as part of the release, last fall, the band performed a series of intimate hometown shows at Gamla Bio and livestreamed them to audiences across the world from Reykjavik, Iceland.
