Of Mice & Men To Release Third Album 'Restoring Force' On January 28th



SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - NOVEMBER 27, 2013 - Of Mice & Men today announced that their third studio album Restoring Force will be released on January 28th on Rise Records. The album is the follow up to the band's 2011's acclaimed release The Flood, which solidified the California-based five-piece as a leading force in modern heavy music. Restoring Force was recorded at House of Loud in New Jersey and produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach, A Day To Remember, Breaking Benjamin).

"What happens after a disaster? What happens after The Flood?" asks the band's frontman Austin Carlile. "You return to normal. You find balance again. That's what we felt like we were doing with this album. We wanted this record to bring equilibrium back to our band and music. We're letting everyone know that we're here to stay. We're Restoring Force."

Today the band also unveiled various Restoring Force pre-order bundles, including limited edition items such as a shell shaped pewter pendant necklace, autographed promotional posters, limited edition colored 12 inch LPs, and more. Visit for more details.

Of Mice & Men recently announced that they will join Bring Me The Horizon for 'The American Dream Tour' - an extensive run of North American dates that will kick off on February 3rd in Orlando, FL. Tickets for the tour are on-sale now. See below for the complete list of dates.

Restoring Force is the follow up to The Flood, which was originally released on June 14, 2011 and received a re-release on July 24, 2012 and included four new tracks. The Flood debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was hailed by the New York Times as "one of the year's most bruising rock debuts." Alternative Press called the album a "genuine statement of artistic purpose." Rock Sound declared the release "a truly memorable, hip-shaking face-breaker of epic proportions." To this date, The Flood has sold over 125,000 copies and has been streamed nearly 16,000,000 times on YouTube, making it one of the most successful releases in Rise Records' 22 years of operation. The band has brought their memorable live show to audiences around the world having sold out multiple headlining tours domestically and internationally. 

Of Mice & Men is Austin Carlile (vocals), Alan Ashby (guitar), Valentino Arteaga (drums), Aaron Pauley (vocals / bass) and Phil Manansala (guitar).
