OF MICE & MEN ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM EARTHANDSKY
ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 27 VIA RISE RECORDS
Over the course of nearly a decade, Of Mice & Men have steadily risen to the top of the genre’s ranks, hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock and Independent Charts and No. 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200. The band has also racked up close to 5 million social media followers, along with a following so dedicated that it’s practically disciple-like in its fandom. Through the years, they’ve shared stages with artists such as Metallica, Linkin Park, Slipknot, and Queens of the Stone Age, holding their own all the while winning over new fans with each performance.
Of Mice & Men will release their sixth album earthandsky on September 27 via Rise Records. The band has shared the video for the title track, stylized as “Earth & Sky.”
Earth & Sky starts off with the thunderous spooky song “Gravedancer“. This tune come out swinging with some hard hitting metal thrashing that will make you break your neck from thrashing around!! and continue through the whole song.
Taste Of Regret is another song that got my attention real quick.. and this one comes out just banging from the start with dirty crunchy guitar riffs for day. The clean vocals really balance out this tune that i thing everyone will rage over.
The title track “Earth & Sky” is one that will pull you in and give anyone hope.
“‘Earth & Sky’ is a song about resilience,” … “It’s about understanding that you can rise above whatever it is that keeps trying to drag you down, no matter what. For me, a lot of the time, I’m writing about battling with my own mind. For you, it may be a person, or an obstacle, or a circumstance. Regardless of whatever it is that’s trying relentlessly to drag you down, I hope this song empowers you to rise above it with authority, like it does me every time I sing it.”said singer/bassist Aaron Pauley
Another stand out tune is “Meltdown“. Love this tone!!! So refreshing to the screaming vocals. It really has a great grove to it and is going to be a lot of people favorites I do believe. I feel it is always good to have one song the catch our breath from all the face melting! and this one is it.
This raging album ends with “How To Survive“. This is an in your face beast of a song that will get the blood flowing like a lava flow out of a volcano. THIS WILL ME A MOSH PIT FAVORITE!!… you can count on that.
If EARTHANDSKY Doesn’t Get You Up and MOSHING!!…Check your Pulse!
