OF MICE & MEN have announced a new album!
Titled Tether, the upcoming album from the American metalcore band is the follow-up to 2021’s Echo, and is scheduled to be released in October this year, via SharpTone Records.
Taking all creative matters into their own hands, the Southern California quartet self-produced and engineered all of the songs on Tether. Vocalist Aaron Pauley mixed and mastered the album while drummer David Valentino Arteaga designed and painted the album’s artwork. As a legion of devoted listeners worldwide has come to expect, guitarists Phil Manansala and Alan Ashby, Aaron, and Tino poured their hearts and souls into every note, creating another sonic document of their lives.
“With this one, we weren’t really focused on how it sounded as much as we focused on how it felt,” Pauley explains. “And that’s a weird thing to do when all you’re working with is sound. But that was really the goal. And we walked away from making it, feeling like we’ve accomplished that.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, OF MICE & MEN have released a new music video for a new song lifted from the upcoming album; Warpaint. “We’re excited to share Warpaint as the first single,” says Pauley. “We feel like it bridges the gap between the OM&M you’ve heard and known, and what’s to come. Warpaint is a heavy and anthemic song about resilience, and rallying the courage to face your fears head on.”
