After recording Someday Came Suddenly and touringwithAttack Attack!, Austin was kicked out of theband.Afterthat, Austin decidedtostart something new on hisown.He asked one of his best friends Jaxin Hall fromNewZealand to behis partner in crime and a partofwhateverhedid next.The two got their friends inThough SheWroteandMiss MayI to help them write andrecordthe song“SevenThousand Miles For What?”they hadbeenworking on.The next day theyposted it and made aMySpacepage. Five days later theinevitablehappened. Theyjoined upwith the two people that hadstood by them sinceday one.Rise Records and Artery werealwaysconsideredfamily,andafter hearing the song, theyweresigned. Solidifying the line up with Valentino Arteaga fromLowerDefinition on drums,ShayleyBourgetfromCovetteonguitar and vocals,andPhilManansalafrom A Static Lullaby on guitar, Of Mice andMenrecorded their debut self-titledalbum. On April 5, 2010, Of Mice & Men announced ontheirMySpace that Austin Carlile was no longer in the banddueto an inabilityto tour becauseofheart surgery and apersonalfeud with the guitarist. He was replaced with formerSkyEats Airplanevocalist Jerry Roush. AftercompletingallofBamboozle Festival 2010, Of Mice & Men took part inthe2010 Vans Warped Tour. Jerry Roush was then stranded by the band andAustininvited back in after his heart condition got better andwhenAustinand the rest of thebandmade amends. Theythentoured on the 2011 Warped Tour and have releasedtheirsecond album,The Flood. In early 2012, the clean vocalist Shayley Bourget lefttheband due to personal issues. Later that year, they tookpartin the2012 VansWarpedTour. On April 2, 2012 during an interview with AlternativePressAustin Carlile stated that the band sound on theirupcomingalbumwill be "...morerock, or I guess a nu-metalsound youcould say.", Carlile went on to say that"...ournewer stuff is alot morestructured. When I think ofnu-metal,I thinkofLinkin Park, Limp Bizkit,Slipknotandeven Chevelle-thosetypes of bands. The songs arealotmorestructured and they're a lot deeper and the tuningsareeven lower.I kind of wantedto touch on that and haveoursongs to have more ofarock and roll feel. Just in yourface,angsty, here-it-is rock and roll.And that's what I thinkofwhen I think of nu-metal: structured, heavymusicthat hasapoint.It's angry just like all the othermusic,but thebiggerparts are bigger and the powerful parts are morepowerfuland theslow partsslower." On December 4, 2012 the band revealed via Facebookthatthey are currently writing and demoing material fortheirnextalbum.The band hadthefollowing to say: "In casesomeof you don't already know, we are currently home fromtourfor theremainder of 2012 and are now backinourstudioworking on our brand new album!
