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

After recording Someday Came Suddenly and touring withAttack 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 NewZealand to behis partner in crime and a part ofwhatever hedid next.The two got their friends in[L]Though She Wrote[/L]andMiss MayI to help them write and recordthe song “SevenThousand Miles For What?”they had beenworking on.The next day theyposted it and made a MySpacepage. Five days later the inevitablehappened. They joined upwith the two people that hadstood by them since day one.Rise Records and Artery were always consideredfamily,andafter hearing the song, they weresigned.

Solidifying the line up with Valentino Arteaga from LowerDefinition on drums,Shayley BourgetfromCovetteonguitar and vocals,and Phil Manansalafrom A Static Lullaby on guitar, Of Mice and Menrecorded their debut self-titledalbum.

On April 5, 2010, Of Mice & Men announced on theirMySpace that Austin Carlile was no longer in the band dueto an inabilityto tour becauseof heart surgery and a personalfeud with the guitarist. He was replaced with former SkyEats Airplanevocalist Jerry Roush. After completingall ofBamboozle Festival 2010, Of Mice & Men took part in the2010 Vans Warped Tour.

Jerry Roush was then stranded by the band and Austininvited back in after his heart condition got better and whenAustinand the rest of theband made amends. They thentoured on the 2011 Warped Tour and have released theirsecond album,The Flood.

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

On April 2, 2012 during an interview with Alternative PressAustin Carlile stated that the band sound on their upcomingalbumwill be "... morerock, or I guess a nu-metal sound youcould say.", Carlile went on to say that"...our newer stuff is alot morestructured. When I think of nu-metal, I thinkofLinkin Park, Limp Bizkit,Slipknot andeven Chevelle-thosetypes of bands. The songs are a lotmorestructured and they're a lot deeper and the tunings areeven lower.I kind of wantedto touch on that and have oursongs 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 ofwhen I think of nu-metal: structured, heavymusic that has apoint.It's angry just like all the othermusic,but the biggerparts are bigger and the powerful parts are more powerfuland theslow parts slower..

On December 4, 2012 the band revealed via Facebook thatthey are currently writing and demoing material for theirnextalbum.The band hadthe following to say: "In case someof you don't already know, we are currently home from tourfor theremainder of 2012 and are now backin our studioworking on our brand new album!
