Relentless Metalcore prodigies Of Mice & Men have been through the wringer with their share of lineup changes, so a lockdown surely isn’t enough to break the united strength they have built. Conversely, it has only fed their resolve as they announce their plan for an EP trilogy, the first one titled Timeless. Prioritizing quality over quantity, Timeless (Sharptone Records) places Metalcore’s simpler times in a new context by using its nostalgic facets to tell a story we can all relate to today.
Of Mice & Men have canceled four shows this week in Flagstaff, Grand Junction, Lakewood and Syracuse “due to a medical situation that requires immediate urgent attention.” The band apologized to fans in a Twitter post. Last month the band canceled its concert in Hartford, Connecticut after frontman Aaron Pauley was taken ill.
The climb to success is rarely without slips or derailing obstacles; a fact that Californian Metallers Of Mice & Men have recently found during what has proven to be their most successful time period, and also their most punishing and challenging. Having shared stages with absolute titans of the Rock and Metal world, such as supporting Linkin Park, they also began to show signs of wear, with previous album Cold World (Rise) highlighting frontman Austin Carlisle’s lingering health issues that led to his departure.Continue reading

Of Mice And Men have debuted the trailer and Part 1 of their five-part documentary series, The Full Circle Story, with new episodes coming every Monday for the following four weeks. You can watch Part 1 at this link or below:
To watch the entire documentary, fans will need to sign up for Of Mice And Men’s fan club The Ampersand at the bands’ website. Jon Stone, who has worked with the band in the past directed The Full Circle Story. It was shot over the course of the past year, following the band as they traveled on their world tour supporting their hit album Restoring Force (Rise) .
Vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley commented on the documentary:
“The Full Circle Story”places fans on both sides of the stage: capturing electrifying concert footage, then going behind the scenes for a rare glimpse at the inner workings of the band that’s being hailed as “the leaders of metal’s new revolution.”
“The Full Circle Story’ offers the viewer an incredibly unique perspective—our perspective,” says Pauley. “The 5-part series takes the viewer on a wild international journey through our past few years, as seen through our eyes. It also showcases some of our favorite moments since the release of Restoring Force, complete with live footage from shows played around the world and interviews from the band. With the help of our friend Jon Stone, ‘The Full Circle Story’ captures what it’s like to be in Of Mice & Men, and we can’t wait to share that experience with our fans in a way we never have before.”
Front man Austin Carlile also commented
“It’s been an extreme past half year of broken ribs, head, hips, and tour dates,” adds Carlile. “After initial surgeries, followed by more medical exams & tests, and physical therapy multiple times a week, the last few months have been a real hurdle for me mentally and physically. Now that we’ve reached the other side, I’m ready to get the relentless machine that is Of Mice & Men back on track. It will start in March with two and a half months in the studio recording our new album. Then a UK / European festival run (taking in Slamdunk and Rock Am Ring/rock Im Park). Next up we will be opening for Slipknot & MM all summer long in America, playing various American rock radio festivals along the way, including Chicago Open Air Festival. We hope our new documentary series ‘The Full Circle Story’ will hold you over for now. We put a lot of time and energy into it and hope you enjoy watching part of our Artemis journey and just how it all came Full Circle. See you on the road. Tell everyone you know, Of Mice & Men is back.“
Of Mice & Men will spend the summer on a 34-city tour with Slipknot and Marilyn Manson (dates to be announced).
