Of Monsters and Men, the Icelandic band that blew up shortly after releasing their debut My Head is An Animal, is slated to release their highly-anticipated follow-up later this year. The album, Beneath The Skin, was co-produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Death Cab for Cutie, Interpol) and recorded between Iceland and Los Angeles.

“I really enjoyed working with Rich Costey on Beneath The Skin,” said guitarist Brynjar Leifsson. He helped me flesh out and sharpen all the ideas I had in my head. I learned a lot from this process.”

During the recording process, director and friend of the band David Gallardo spent time in the studio and behind the scenes, documenting the making of the record. In anticipation of the album’s release, Of Monsters and Men will release one clip of the mini-doc each week. This week, the band has teased a clip that focuses on the development of the guitar on Beneath the Skin. Watch the video in the player above.

Beneath the Skin is set for release on June 9 via Republic Records and available for pre-order now. For more from Of Monsters and Men, check out their full set from the Paste party at South by Southwest 2012 in the player below.
