Orange County, California-based metalcore/post-hardcore band Of Mice & Men has set February 24, 2015 release date for “Restoring Force: Full Circle”, a deluxe double-disc, foil-stamped digipack that includes three brand-new songs and an acoustic version of the band’s hit single ‘Feels Like Forever’.
The new songs — ‘Broken Generation’, ‘Something To Hide’, ‘Never Giving Up’ and the acoustic version of ‘Feels Like Forever’ — were recorded this past fall with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon) in Southern California.
The two-CD set is a special reissue of the album “Restoring Force”, which hit No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart and No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Independent and Top Rock Albums charts.
Of Mice & Men — vocalist Austin Carlile, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Arteaga, vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley and guitarist Phil Manansala — will play ‘Feels Like Forever’ and other fan favorites during their upcoming U.S. arena tour with Linkin Park, which kicks off January 15 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The two bands recently completed an international arena tour, dates that often saw Carlile joining Linkin Park onstage for a show-stopping rendition of the latter’s smash hit ‘Faint’.
Following dates with Linkin Park, Of Mice & Men will head to Australia for three dates on the Soundwave Festival, then return to Europe for a headlining tour that kicks off March 11 in Paris.
Of Mice & Men recently teamed with USA Today for the video premiere of ‘Feels Like Forever’, a clip that’s amassed close to a million views. The stunning video was directed by Nathan William and filmed in Los Angeles.
Since the 2010 release of their self-titled debut, Of Mice & Men have blanketed rock radio airwaves, garnered critical acclaim and amassed over 20 million YouTube views and close to 5 million social media followers on the strength of an electrifying sound and live show. The latter has seen them play to packed-house crowds on headlining tours around the world and key slots on top fests, including this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, where they were part of a star-studded lineup that included artists such as Queens Of The Stone Age, Artic Monkeys, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
