Of Mice & Men


Groupe de musique Metalcore Punk des États-Unis formé en 2009


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.

History

Formation and debut album (2009–2010)

Of Mice & Men was founded by Austin Carlile, the original vocalist of Attack Attack!, and bassist Jaxin Hall, an import from Auckland, New Zealand during 2009 in Columbus, Ohio. Carlile and Hall searched for other members for about a month. According to Carlile in an interview, Carlile's desktop background was none other than Valentino Arteaga, drummer of Lower Definition, and Jon Kintz of Odd Project. Carlile was amazed when Arteaga was interested in playing drums for the band after being sent an invite over email. The trio then added Phil Manansala, a touring guitarist for A Static Lullaby and the line-up was set. Carlile and Hall moved to Southern California to join the others. A little while later, Kintz was cut from the band and replaced with Shayley Bourget. With a question at hand asking of the departure of Kintz in a Q&A for the group, Bourget jokingly stated, "Jon didn't cut it." On Kintz's part, he reportedly cited that the band felt he was "partying too much." After reaching 1,000,000 plays from their Myspace profile in just two months since its launch, the band uploaded a cover of Lady Gaga's song, "Poker Face". The song was mastered by Tom Denney, formerly of A Day to Remember and a copy of the demo was sent directly to Rise Records. Recognizing the band as Carlile's new musical project, Of Mice & Men was signed to the label. The group then traveled to the Foundation Studios in Connersville, Indiana on July 14, 2009, with Joey Sturgis to record their self-titled debut album.On December 6, 2009, they had two video shoots in Ventura, California, for "Those in Glass Houses" and "Second & Sebring". The band released their debut album on March 9, 2010. The original release date was February 23, but the album was forced into a delay. A month before the official release, the album was leaked on February 10 by fans who hacked into the system. The music video for "Second & Sebring" was released on Hot Topic's website and made its television premiere on Headbangers Ball on March 15, 2010.The band joined the "Squash the Beef Tour" supporting Dance Gavin Dance, along with Emarosa, Tides of Man, and Of Machines. Also in 2009, Of Mice & Men was support on the "Atticus Tour" along with Finch, Blessthefall, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, Vanna, and Let's Get It. After completion of the "Atticus Tour", the band supported I See Stars on the "Leave It to the Suits Tour" with We Came as Romans, Broadway, and Covendetta.

Departure of Carlile and Hall (2010–2011)

Jerry Roush, who was formerly a part of Sky Eats Airplane, soon became a permanent addition to Of Mice & Men. Originally, Roush was a substitute for Austin Carlile on the Emptiness Tour in 2010 which featured the band along with Alesana, A Skylit Drive, the Word Alive, and We Came as Romans. Carlile required a heart surgery performed in the near future and was forced to not tour by his doctor. At the same time, Carlile fell into a conflict with the other members. Through much deliberation, the band and Carlile decided to part ways. The group thereafter invited Roush to front Of Mice & Men. The band was featured on the cover for the 19th issue of Substream Music Press shortly after this decision.After the Emptiness Tour, Of Mice & Men supported Attack Attack! on the "This Is A Family Tour" with In Fear and Faith, Pierce the Veil, and Emmure.Months after Roush joined the band, bassist, Jaxin Hall left the group on August 23, 2010. Hall explained that the reasons for this decision were made to concentrate more on his personal life, as well as his clothing brand, Love Before Glory. Dane Poppin of A Static Lullaby, the former band for Phil, substituted as a bassist for Of Mice & Men's then upcoming tour dates after Hall's departure. The group was included in the Punk Goes... compilation, Punk Goes Pop Volume 03., covering the R&B song, "Blame It" by Jamie Foxx with Poppin on bass and is the only recording by the band to feature Roush's vocals. The band participated in Warped Tour 2010. Shortly after the conclusion of Warped Tour, Of Mice & Men toured the UK in support of August Burns Red and Blessthefall.

Carlile's return with Ashby, and The Flood (2011–2012)

Leading onto Roush being a part of the band for already nine months, the group confirmed on January 3, 2011, that they reached a decision to have Jerry Roush leave Of Mice & Men in favor for former vocalist and founding member, Austin Carlile, to return to the group. Roush posted an extended response to his firing from the band on his Twitter account. Carlile was under an intention for months to start a new musical project, with fellow musician Alan Ashby, until his request to return to the group was made. Carlile and Ashby were then both accepted into Of Mice & Men, with Ashby as an entirely new member. The group then underwent a slight arrangement, as they required a bassist after several substitutions to which Dane Poppin, of A Static Lullaby, contributed. Poppin's needed return to A Static Lullaby after extensive touring with Of Mice & Men had the group move Shayley Bourget from rhythm guitar to bass guitar, but remain at clean vocals. Alan Ashby was employed as rhythm guitarist.The refreshed band began the recording process of their second album titled The Flood in late January 2011. Shortly after the album's completion, the band headlined the 2011 annual "Artery Across the Nation Tour" with support from Woe, Is Me, Sleeping with Sirens, I Set My Friends on Fire, and the Amity Affliction.The band toured Europe and Australia in support of the Amity Affliction, along with I Killed the Prom Queen, and Deez Nuts. They also later supported Asking Alexandria on a short four-day UK tour along with While She Sleeps.On May 13, 2011, Of Mice & Men released a brand new single entitled, "Still YDG'N". Also, on May 24, they released a second song entitled, "Purified". "Purified" has been added to the 2011 installment of Sideonedummy's annual Warped Tour compilation. The Flood was released June 14, 2011.

Of Mice & Men participated on all of the Warped Tour 2011. They were joined by former bassist Jaxin Hall on select California dates for "Second & Sebring". From September 13, 2011 until October 14, 2011, Of Mice & Men supported We Came as Romans on the "I'm Alive Tour" along with Miss May I, Texas in July, and Close to Home. Afterward, the group headlined the "Monster Energy Outbreak Tour" with Iwrestledabearonce, I See Stars, Abandon All Ships, and That's Outrageous!. For the Fallen Dreams was also included on the first half of the tour. Devin Oliver (I See Stars) and Christopher Stewart (That's Outrageous!) filled in on clean vocals after the departure of Shayley Bourget midway through the tour.

Musical style and influences

Of Mice & Men have been described as metalcore, nu metal, alternative metal, post-hardcore, hard rock, alternative rock, melodic metalcore, heavy metal, melodic hardcore, and arena rock. The band's debut self-titled album has been considered a typical metalcore album comparable with the work of the Devil Wears Prada, We Came as Romans, and Carlile's former band Attack Attack!, and to contain elements of post-hardcore. Their second album, The Flood, was described as atypical to modern metalcore and more melodic than their earlier work, and as featuring some slight elements of nu metal. Their third album, Restoring Force, incorporated a lot more nu metal elements into their sound, with a Rock Sound review describing the album's style as a mixture of nu metal and metalcore. Their fourth album, Cold World, saw them embracing the nu metal sound heard from Restoring Force with the album taking influence from early-2000s nu metal. Their fifth album, Defy, marked the first album without founding vocalist Austin Carlile with the band's bassist Aaron Pauley taking over both clean and unclean vocals. The album also marked the return to their heavy sound however still keeping elements from their fourth album.The band's style employs a contrast between harsh vocals and standard singing. Currently, frontman/bassist Aaron Pauley performs both techniques.

Of Mice & Men's influences include bands such as Alice in Chains, Deftones, Korn, Incubus, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, P.O.D., Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Staind and Tool.

Band name

When asked about the band's name origin, former vocalist Austin Carlile responded with:

"The book Of Mice and Men says 'the well laid plans of mice and men often falter.' You make plans, and they get screwed up. [Jaxin Hall] and I both had plans for life, and they both got screwed up, so now we're making the most of what we can."

Former bassist Jaxin Hall also commented, stating:

"The main theme of [Of Mice and Men] is the American Dream [...] and being self sufficient [...] As a band, I was thinking about that when Austin and I were thinking about forming this band that we wanted this to be our American Dream, especially considering that I'm not from America [...] So this was to be our self sufficient thing that we could live off and make our own and achieve this dream. [...] So I looked at things that happened with [past relationships] and that everyone had the best intentions with things, and that they didn't quite work out the way we wanted it to."
