Of Mice & Men

Based out of Costa Mesa, California, hard-hitting, Steinbeck-loving metalcore outfit Of Mice & Men was formed in 2009 in Columbus, Ohio by Attack Attack! vocalist Austin Carlile and New Zealand-bred bass player Jaxin Hall.

Boasting a rotating cast of players that, as of 2014, features Carlile (lead vocals), Alan Ashby (rhythm guitar), Phil Manansala (lead guitar), Aaron Pauley (bass, vocals), and Valentino Arteaga (drums), the band released its eponymous debut long-player through Rise Records in 2010, followed by the Flood in 2011, and Restoring Force in 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
