Of Mice & Men are back! This time with the first in a series of (at least) three ep’s, “Timeless”. Listen in as Ozz talks with Front-man Arron Pauley about the direction of the latest release and where the next ep’s might take us.
Of Mice & Men (often abbreviated OM&M) is an American rock band formed in Costa Mesa, California in 2009. The band’s line-up currently consists of lead vocalist and bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarists Phil Manansala and Alan Ashby, and drummer Valentino Arteaga. The group was founded by former lead vocalist Austin Carlile and former bassist Jaxin Hall in mid-2009 after Carlile’s departure from Attack Attack!. Carlile departed from the band in December 2016 citing that a long-term health condition prompted his exit. After Carlile’s departure, the band continued to pursue creating music with Pauley as the band’s bassist and lead vocalist.
Since 2009, the band has released six studio albums: Of Mice & Men (2010), The Flood (2011), Restoring Force (2014), Cold World (2016), Defy (2018), and Earthandsky (2019). Of Mice & Men’s earlier music has been described as metalcore and post-hardcore. Their later material, however, has been considered to be more melodic and shifted over to genres such as, nu metal, alternative metal, and hard rock, while retaining their original sound.
The band has played international music festivals including The Vans Warped Tour in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014 and Soundwave Music Festival in 2013 and 2015. -wikipedia
