of mice & men 2014‘Feels Like Forever’, the new video from the Orange County, California-based metalcore/post-hardcore band Of Mice & Men, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Nathan William and filmed in Los Angeles.

“In the studio, ‘Feels Like Forever’ was the FIRST song we demoed, and ended up being the LAST song we finished recording,” says Of Mice & Men lead singer Austin Carlile. “It fought back. It’s a song that everyone in the band has a personal attachment to for various reasons. Bringing it to life visually and in our own backyard of Southern California was a great experience. Sand in my shoes still and all.”

‘Feels Like Forever’ appears on Of Mice & Men‘s latest album, “Restoring Force”, which was produced by David Bendeth [Paramore, Papa Roach, A Day To Remember, Breaking Benjamin]. It follows previous single ‘Would You Still Be There’, the video for which has racked up over 2 million views. Continue reading »

Of Mice & Men Pic‘Would You Still Be There’, the new video from the California-based rock quintet Of Mice & Men, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Nathan Cox for Renaissance Man Productions. The song is taken from the band’s third studio album, “Restoring Force”, which sold around 51,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on January 28 via Rise Records.

“I’m super excited for the debut of our new video for ‘Would You Still Be There’,” said Aaron Pauley, the band’s bassist and clean vocalist. “Directed by Nathan Cox, who has worked with bands like Linkin Park and Chevelle, the video offers a peek into a present day small town set in an alternate post-apocalyptic reality and its gas mask clad inhabitants.

“Shooting the video was a great experience. Nathan and his staff did an incredible job with the imagery and location, and created a believable setting in an abandoned mining town north of L.A. Despite chipping my tooth on that pesky vintage microphone, I had a blast, and it was awesome getting to hang with some of our fans; which can be seen in the video’s ending performances parts.” Continue reading »
