Icelandic indie folk, indie pop band Of Monsters and Men had their debut performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday and, man, were they amazing. No surprise, though, as Of Monsters and Men have really shown what they are made of this year.

A smash hit second studio album with Beneath the Skin, sold out concerts all over Europe and America, massive views on their YouTube videos, their song ‘Crystals featured in the trailer for Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, and now a stellar performance on Ellen.

Of Monsters and Men’s new album Beneath the Skin is absolutely sublime

Of Monsters and Men performed their latest single ‘Empire‘ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, a performance that included growly vocals from Ragnar Þórhallsson that really added a huge amount of emotional depth to this track. Making it one of my favorites of all the Of Monsters and Men live appearances I have seen so far.

Watch Of Monsters and Men perform ‘Empire‘ on Ellen in the video below. They really do kick some major ass.

And, of course, buy their latest album Beneath the Skin. This one really is an absolute gem.
