Beneath The Skin is the second studio album by Icelandic folk-pop band Of Monsters And Men released on June 8, 2015 through Republic Records. The album was produced by the band together with Rich Costey and recorded in Iceland and Los Angeles. It debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 61,000 copies, becoming the band's highest-charting album to date.
"For the first album, being from Iceland, you could feel in the lyrics that we wanted to go out and explore," said Þórhallsson. "Because we've toured for two years, I think you can hear in this album that we're going more inwards. We're writing more about us instead of what's out there. It's much more personal."
