Californian post-hardcore/metalcore outfit Of Mice & Men have been tucked away in the studio for a while working on the follow-up to last year’s ‘Defy’, and now they’re ready to share what they’ve been putting together.
The band have just unveiled a brand new single called ‘How To Survive’, and is expected to feature on their forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced fifth record.
Speaking further about the song and its message, vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley had this to say.
“‘How to Survive’ is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse. It’s for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It’s for the teenager who was told that they’ll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don’t matter to the world. It’s for the person who has been told that they’re worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It’s for the person who’s repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down.”

More details surrounding the band’s yet-to-be-announced fifth album and follow-up to ‘Defy’ will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
