Sounds | Of Mice & Men, Obsolete
Goed nieuws voor Of Mice & Men fans! De band is terug met een nieuw liedje én kondigden de release van een EP aan. We mogen de Timeless EP al volgende maand verwachten (26 februari). De groep laat ook weten getekend te hebben bij SharpTone Records. Het nieuwe liedje, Obsolete, klinkt alvast veelbelovend.
Frontman Aaron Pauley heeft het volgende te vertellen over de nieuwe song: "It's a song about questioning how future-proof one is in the grand scheme of things, and acknowledging that maybe we aren't at all. I think we all wonder, to a certain extent, whether or not we'll fit into the future, or how we would, or what that would look like. Obsolescence is very prevalent in our lives. We see how quickly old phones become virtually useless, how quickly fads and trends come and go. It's all too easy to ponder about when you'll become a covered wagon, or a flip phone, or Myspace.."
Over het nieuwe album laat hij alvast het volgende los: "There's an old idiom about what you're supposed to do when life gives you lemons. Sadly, to disappoint, this wasn't exactly that. We started writing this EP shortly before the initial lockdowns in spring of 2020, before we knew that our world was about to become a radically different place. A lot of these songs were born from a place of wondering how we'd fit into 2020 and beyond, both as adults in our 30s as well as a band that's a decade into our existence."
Over the course of a decade and six anthemic full-length albums, Of Mice & Men have risen to the top of the genre's ranks, hitting No. 1 on Billboard's Rock and Independent Charts and No. 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200. They've shared stages with artists such as Metallica, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Bring Me the Horizon, and A Day to Remember, holding their own all the while readily winning over new fans.
