Everyone's favourite Icelandic folk-pop band is coming back to Singapore.
Of Monsters and Men, who last made their debut at Laneway Festival 2013, will be returning next year for a headlining show at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel. While the band was fairly quiet since their explosive debut My Head Is An Animal, followed by a lengthy world tour, the band pushed out their sophomore album Beneath the Skin earlier this year, which they'll be supporting on their current tour.
The band is arguably one of Iceland's biggest exports, having had the chance to perform significant sets at various festivals around the world, including Coachella and Newport Folk Festival, and for good reason. My Head Is An Animal was a critical and commercial success, along with its leading singles 'Little Talks' and 'Dirty Paws', and now their new album Beneath the Skin further boosts the quintet as they continue to sell out shows worldwide.
As part of WOAH Fest, a joint effort between Singapore's Symmetry Entertainment and KARPOS Multimedia from the Philippines, Of Monsters and Men will be playing a standalone sideshow on May 10, with the full line-up of WOAH Fest yet to be revealed. The band joins Death Cab for Cutie, who are set for an earlier date of March 7. Tickets will be on sale on December 15, Tuesday at 10am. Standard tickets are priced at SG$99, while VIP tickets — which include priority entry, 1 free drink and access to an exclusive VIP-only area — go for SG$190.
The organizers behind the upcoming festival will also be running a 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway from 14-25 December. Look out for tickets, signed merchandise and other great prizes that you could win.
