Of Mice & Men Release New Single ‘How To Survive’

Of Mice & Men have been in the studio lately and are ready to share what they’ve been working on. The band recently shared their new single “How to Survive.” The song not only marks their first new music since the release of their last album, Defy, it also marks their first release without frontman Austin Carlile.

“‘How to Survive’ is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse,” commented bassist/singer Aaron Pauley. “It’s for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It’s for the teenager who was told that they’ll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don’t matter to the world. It’s for the person who has been told that they’re worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It’s for the person who’s repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down.”

He continued, “This song is for them. This song is for me. I am them, and I’m still standing. So, turn it up. Feel the rage. If you, too, are that person, you will know it well, and it will greet you like an old friend.”

Listen to the song below.
