Of Mice & Men Recording New Album

Of Mice & Men are currently in the studio recording a new album with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira). Aaron Pauley commented:

“We’re super pumped to be in the studio with Josh, as we’re all big fans of his production and mix discography. When we decided to go heavier with this album, Josh‘s was one of the first names to pop up — and I can tell you, we’re a little over halfway done and it’s sounding huge and heavy, heavenly and absolutely demonic — all rolled into one.”

Of Mice & Men Cancel Mesa, AZ Show

Of Mice & Men have cancelled their show at The Nile Theater in Mesa, AZ tonight (March 6), due Aaron Pauley’s illness. However, Blessthefall, Cane Hill, Fire From The Gods, and MSCW will still perform.

Of Mice & Men commented:

“Of Mice & Men are unfortunately being forced to cancel their show in at The Nile Theater in Mesa tonight. Aaron visited a doctor yesterday, but is still recovering from illness and is simply not able to perform tonight’s show. Our shows in San Diego and Berkley will go ahead as planned.

Regarding tonight’s show, the rest of the bands on the Defy Tour will still be going ahead with the show, so if you’d like to see Blessthefall, Cane Hill, Fire From the Gods and MSCW, then your ticket for the show will remain valid. If you want a refund however, you can get this from your point of purchase.

We promise we will be back in Mesa very soon to make up for this show. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding- Aaron, Alan, Phil & Tino.”
