Icelandic indie pop outfit Of Monsters and Men have an expressive new lyric video for "Organs," a track off their sophomore album Beneath The Skin. This isn't the only treat they have in store: the band is also staging a contest that could land your face right into their next video.

The "Empire Fan Lyric Video" invites any and all fans to make a Youtube video of themselves singing and dancing along with "Empire" (hear above), drawing inspiration from the "Organs" video as well as their own interpretation of the song. The most creative and well-made videos will be edited and compiled into the "Fan Video," which will be debuting on VEVO in August.

Co-vocalist and Guitarist Ragnar Þórhallsson commented on the project: “It's been wonderful seeing all these different interpretations of our songs by actors and performers in our lyric video series, and it's going to be incredible seeing fan interpretations. At our shows, you can see how passionate our fans are when they’re singing along. Sometimes when I look into the crowd, I see a person that knows the words so perfectly—it feels like they almost know the songs better than us! We're really excited about this project and to see what people come up with.”

The lyric video for "Organs" features co-vocalist and guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir performing the song. Watch below, and submit your video here before the August 12 deadline.
