Icelandic folk-pop.rockers Of Monsters And Men release today (Friday 7.12) a new single, titled “Wild Roses” that serves as the second single off of their upcoming album Fever Dream, out on July 26. “Wild Roses” is coming off the heels of a highly successful first single “Alligator,” which reached no. 1 on the Billboard Adult Alternative Songs Chart.
Says co-vocalist Nanna Hilmarsdóttir in a press release: “We are excited to share with you Wild Roses from our upcoming album FEVER DREAM. The song shows an introverted side to the album and is influenced by a bit of dance music and Joseph Campbell’s “The power of myth and what it is like to lean into your sadness.’”
In addition, the group will be hitting the road throughout North America for the Fever Dream Tour. The tour will start September 4 in Washington, DC and wind their way from coast to coast before wrapping it all up September 28 in Vancouver’s UBC Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre.
