What a day for Of Mice & Men fans! The hard rock band – vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Arteaga, and guitarist Phil Manansala – announced their new album Defy, arriving in stores and online January 19, 2018. Pre-order it HERE!
Kicking off this next chapter with a bang, the band has shared its new single “Warzone”. Watch the intense music video below. The song is everything metalcore fans could wish for: it’s fast paced and aggressive with arresting hooks. Quite an epic track!
“We’re excited to be debuting the music video for ‘Warzone’ today, a song from our new album, Defy,” said Pauley. “For us, this new album encapsulates and showcases our desire to return to an aggressive, live-oriented sound, and ‘Warzone’ is one of the heaviest tracks on the album. Because we love releasing new music as often as we can, it only seemed fitting to release it right before our massive EU/UK tour with In Flames and Five Finger Death Punch this Fall/Winter. So turn it up, and bang your head.”
The upcoming album Defy was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Skillet, The All-American Rejects) and mixed by Chris Lord Alge (Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Rise Against).
Earlier this year, Of Mice & Men teased the forthcoming album with the one-two punch of the singles “Unbreakable” and “Back to Me.” Those songs have clocked over 7 million Spotify streams and 5 million YouTube/VEVO views in six months.
Of Mice & Men’s 2018 tour plans will be announced shortly.
Of Mice & Men will be touring the UK this December supporting Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames
