Hailed by Rock Sound as “The World’s Hottest Band” in a recent cover story, Southern California rockers Of Mice & Men have announced plans for a winter headline tour kicking off January 12 in Seattle, Wash. The trek, presented by Tilly’s, will feature support from Woe Is Me, Texas In July,Volumes, and Capture The Crown.
With over 100,000 records sold, and an explosive live show that’s earned them a reputation as one of rock’s hardest working acts, Of Mice & Men has toured with the likes of Asking Alexandria, A Day To Remember, Every Time I Die, August Burns Red and Memphis May Fire, and graced the covers of such publications as Alternative Press, Outburn, Rock Sound, Big Cheese and more.
Last summer as the band canvassed the country as a Vans Warped Tour main stage headliner (their third time on the annual trek), Rise Records issued an expanded edition of their breakthrough 2011 sophomore release “The Flood”. The Flood Deluxe Reissue featured four brand new tracks recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Social Distortion) and mixed by Joey Sturgis as well as all new artwork.
On November 24 Of Mice & Men will perform at California Metal Fest in San Bernardino, Calif alongside Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, As I Lay Dying, Black Veil Brides, Chiodos and many others. In February the band will return to Australia for Soundwave where they will play alongside Metallica, Linkin Park and Blink 182.
Of Mice & Men is:
Since the release of their 2010 debut, Georgia’s Woe Is Me has hit the ground running and shown no sign of slowing down. Selling over 40,000 albums in that short period of time, they have a healthy fan base who is chomping at the bit for the band’s next release. They’ve also been busy relentlessly touring the U.S. with the likes of Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Attack Attack! as well as a stint on the Vans Warped Tour.
The band’s accomplishments in the last year have been nothing short of noteworthy, and with the release of their follow-up record “Genesi[s]“, which releases November 20, the band looks to not just keep the momentum going, but to bring things to the next level. Genesi[s] is truly a rebirth. It’s the beginning of something new, something of vital importance to the modern music scene that carries with it a message of consequence. In Woe Is Me, the sludgy, aggressive bottom end of vintage nu-metal collides with modern breakdowns and electronic-enhanced atmosphere, alongside the melodic sing-a-long anthem style of A Day To Remember and the arresting emotional ferocity of screamo standard-bearers like The Used and My Chemical Romance; all with a powerful new twist.
