Rise RecordsOf Mice & Men has revealed the details of their next album. The band’s fifth studio effort — and first since vocalist Austin Carlile left the group the end of last year — is called Defy, and will arrive January 19.
Defy features the previously released singles “Unbreakable” and “Back to Me,” plus the new track “Warzone,” which is streaming alongside an intense performance video now on YouTube.
“For us, this new album encapsulates and showcases our desire to return to an aggressive, live-oriented sound, and ‘Warzone’ is one of the heaviest tracks on the album,” says vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley.
Pauley took over lead vocal duties after Carlile’s departure, who left Of Mice & Men due to his ongoing struggle with Marfan syndrome, a connective tissue disorder.
Of Mice & Men will play the last date of their fall U.S. tour supporting In This Moment tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They embark on a European tour with Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames next week.
Here is the Defy track list:
“Back to Me”
“How Will You Live”
“On the Inside”
“If We Were Ghosts”
