Of Mice & Men is a metalcore band formed in Costa Mesa, California, United States in 2009 by Austin CarlileandJaxinHall.Theircurrent line-up consistsof Austin Carlile (ex. Attack Attack!), Phil Manansala, Valentino Arteaga (ex.LowerDefinition), Aaron Pauley (ex. Jamie’s Elsewhere)and Alan Ashby.

After recording Someday Came Suddenly and touring with Attack Attack!, Austin was kicked out oftheband.Afterthat,Austin decided to startsomething new on his own. He asked one of his best friends Jaxin Hall fromNewZealand tobehispartner in crime and a part of whatever he did next.The two got their friends in [L]Though SheWrote[/L]andMissMayI to help them write and record the song “Seven Thousand Miles For What?”they had beenworking on.Thenext daytheyposted it and made a MySpace page. Five days later the inevitable happened. They joined upwiththetwopeople thathadstood by them since day one. Rise Records and Artery were always considered family, and afterhearingthesong, theyweresigned.

Solidifying the line up with Valentino Arteaga from Lower Definition on drums, ShayleyBourgetfromCovetteonguitar and vocals, and PhilManansala from A Static Lullaby on guitar, Of Mice & Menrecordedtheirdebut self-titledalbum.

On April 5, 2010, Of Mice & Men announced on their MySpace that Austin Carlile was no longer in the band duetoaninabilitytotour because of heartsurgery and a personal feud with the guitarist. He was replaced with formerSkyEatsAirplanevocalistJerry Roush. After completing all of BamboozleFestival 2010, Of Mice & Men took part in the2010VansWarpedTour.

Jerry Roush was then stranded by the band and Austin invited back in after his heart condition got betterandwhenAustinandthe rest of the band madeamends. They then toured on the 2011 Warped Tour and have releasedtheirsecondalbum,TheFlood.

In early 2012, the clean vocalist Shayley Bourget left the band due to personal issues. Later that year, theytookpartinthe2012 Vans Warped Tour.

On April 2, 2012 during an interview with Alternative Press Austin Carlile stated that the band sound ontheirupcomingalbumwillbe "... more rock, or Iguess a nu-metal sound you could say.", Carlile went on to say that "...ournewerstuff is alotmorestructured. When I think of nu-metal, I think ofLinkin Park, Limp Bizkit, SlipknotandevenChevelle-thosetypes of bands. The songs are a lot more structured and they're a lotdeeper and the tunings areevenlower.I kind ofwanted totouch on that and have our songs to have more of a rock and roll feel. Just in yourface,angsty,here-it-is rockand roll. Andthat's what I think of when I think of nu-metal: structured, heavy music that has a point.It'sangry justlikeallthe other music,but the bigger parts are bigger and the powerful parts are more powerful and the slowpartsslower..

On December 4, 2012 the band revealed via Facebook that they are currently writing and demoing materialfortheirnextalbum.The band had thefollowing to say: "In case some of you don't already know, we are currently home fromtourfortheremainderof 2012 and are now back in our studioworking on our brand new album!
