Of Mice & Men starts work on “heavier” new album

Credit: Lindsey ByrnesOf Mice & Men‘s new album, Defy, is less than a year old, but the band has already started working on a follow-up. The Orange County metallers are currently in the studio with producer Josh Wilbur, who’s worked with Lamb of God, Korn and Gojira.

“We’re super pumped to be in the studio with Josh, as we’re all big fans of his production and mix discography,” says lead vocalist and bassist Aaron Pauley. “When we decided to go heavier with this album, Josh’s was one of the first names to pop up — and I can tell you, we’re a little over halfway done and it’s sounding huge and heavy, heavenly and absolutely demonic — all rolled into one.”

Defy, Of Mice & Men’s first album with Pauley on lead vocals in place of the departed Austin Carlile, was released in January. It features the single “Back to Me” and a cover of Pink Floyd‘s “Money.”

In addition to working on new music, Of Mice & Men will hit the road next year on a tour with Nothing More, which kicks off in February.
