Icelandic indie folk-pop group Of Monsters and Men have tweeted a picture taken on Chapman's Peak Drive‚ saying simply: "Cape Town: we have arrived!"

The band are performing at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden on Wednesday and Thursday‚ and at the Sowing the Seeds music festival at Emmarentia Dam in Johannesburg on Saturday.

They are on a 33-date world tour to promote their album "Beneath the Skin"‚ which was released last year and debuted at number three on the Billboard chart.

Next month they will feature on the line-up at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio‚ California.

Featured in the picture taken in Cape Town are lead singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and co-singer-guitarist Ragnar "Raggi" Þórhallsson.
