Of Mice & Men, a Southern California based metalcore band, comprised of former members of scene heavy hitters, Attack Attack! (US), A Static Lullaby, and Lower Definition.
Formed with the goal of skilfully blending familiar, heavy and melodic sounds in a mature manner, making for amazing records that translate into intense live shows. Austin Carlile's brutal vocals and Shayley's beautiful, soaring singing did just that on their self-titled debut, recorded with Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, We Came As Romans). Upon release of the first record the band hit the ground running, touring with countless bands in the US and internationally as well as a stint on the Van's Warped Tour.
Seemingly doomed by health issues, Austin persevered through a major operation on his heart, to return to record the bands follow-up album The Flood which will see a UK release with bonus tracks in Summer 2012. Despite the heart surgery the band didn't skip a beat. With The Flood, the band took everything; everyone loved about the first album to the next level. The band appeared across the US on a wildly successful headliner and returned once again to the Vans Warped Tour, this time on a larger stage.
