Of Mice And Men, California’s sensational metalcore artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Of Mice And Men was formed in Orange County in 2009 by Austin Carlile (ex-vocalist of Ohioan metalcore band Attack Attack!) and bassist Jaxin Hall. The band’s had many line-up changes over the years and currently consists of Phil Manansala (lead guitar and backing vocals), David Valentino Arteaga (drums and percussion), Alan Ashby (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), and Aaron Pauley (vocals and bass). The band takes its name from the eponymous novella by John Steinbeck and Austin said in an interview, “The book Of Mice and Men says 'the well laid plans of mice and men often falter.' You make plans, and they get screwed up. [Jaxin Hall] and I both had plans for life, and they both got screwed up, so now we're making the most of what we can.” The band’s musical style is distinguished by a sharp contrast between harsh vocals and singing and they cite Rage Against The Machine, Emmure, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Slipknot and Staind as their main influences. They’ve had a stellar career with 4 studio albums, 1 live album, 15 music videos, and 10 singles. Their latest album (Defy) comes out on 19th January 2018.
