Of Mice & Men is a metalcore band formed in Costa Mesa, California, United States in 2009 by Austin Carlile and Jaxin Hall.Their current line-up consists of Austin Carlile (ex. Attack Attack!), Phil Manansala, Valentino Arteaga(ex. LowerDefinition), Aaron Pauley (ex.[L]Jamie’s Elsewhere[/L])and Alan Ashby.

After recording Someday Came Suddenly and touring with Attack Attack!, Austin was kicked out of the band. Afterthat, Austin decidedto start something new on his own. He asked one of his best friends Jaxin Hall from New Zealand to behis partner in crime and a part ofwhatever he did next.The two got their friends in[L]Though She Wrote[/L]andMiss MayI to help them write and record the song “SevenThousand Miles For What?”they had been working on.The next day theyposted it and made a MySpace page. Five days later the inevitablehappened. They joined up with the two people that hadstood by them since day one. Rise Records and Artery were always consideredfamily,and after hearing the song, they weresigned.

Solidifying the line up with Valentino Arteaga from [L]Lower Definition[/L] on drums,Shayley Bourget fromCovetteonguitar and vocals,and Phil Manansala from A Static Lullaby on guitar, Of Mice and Men recorded their debut self-titledalbum.

On April 5, 2010, Of Mice & Men announced on their MySpace that Austin Carlile was no longer in the band due to an inabilityto tour becauseof heart surgery and a personal feud with the guitarist. He was replaced with former Sky Eats Airplanevocalist Jerry Roush. After completingall of Bamboozle Festival 2010, Of Mice & Men took part in the 2010 Vans Warped Tour.

Jerry Roush was then stranded by the band and Austin invited back in after his heart condition got better and when Austinand the rest of theband made amends. They then toured on the 2011 Warped Tour and have released their second album,The Flood.

In early 2012, the clean vocalist Shayley Bourget left the band due to personal issues. Later that year, they took part in the2012 VansWarped Tour.

On April 2, 2012 during an interview with Alternative Press Austin Carlile stated that the band sound on their upcoming albumwill be "... morerock, or I guess a nu-metal sound you could say.", Carlile went on to say that"...our newer stuff is a lot morestructured. When I think of nu-metal, I think ofLinkin Park, Limp Bizkit,Slipknot and even Chevelle-thosetypes of bands. The songs are a lot morestructured and they're a lot deeper and the tunings are even lower.I kind of wantedto touch on that and have our songs to have more of arock and roll feel. Just in your face, angsty, here-it-is rock and roll.And that's what I think of when I think of nu-metal: structured, heavymusic that has a point.It's angry just like all the othermusic,but the bigger parts are bigger and the powerful parts are more powerful and theslow parts slower..

On December 4, 2012 the band revealed via Facebook that they are currently writing and demoing material for their nextalbum.The band hadthe following to say: "In case some of you don't already know, we are currently home from tour for theremainder of 2012 and are now backin our studio working on our brand new album! YES! An entire album of all brand newmaterial is being written and demoed RIGHT NOW!

The band entered the studio in June 2013 to begin pre. production on the album with producer David Bendeth. « hide
