OF MICE & MEN was forced to cancel its March 11 concert in Hartford, Connecticut after frontman Aaron Pauley was taken ill. He took to his Twitter last night to update fans on his condition. He wrote: "After a bit of a scare earlier, I'm currently at the hospital being evaluated, per the EMT's direction. Thank you all for the well wishes and good vibes. I'll be sure to update everyone as soon as I get some definitive news." A few hours later, he added: "I've been discharged from the hospital and cleared to perform! Thank you everyone for the well wishes. This was one of the scariest days of my life."
OF MICE & MEN recently released a video for a new song called "How To Survive". The clip was directed by Zev Deans (DENZEL CURRY, GHOST).
OF MICE & MEN spent much of the fall hunkered down in the studio working on new material with producer Josh Wilbur.
"How To Survive" is the first taste of new music from the Southern California quartet since last year's much-praised "Defy" album.
OF MICE & MEN is currently on tour with NOTHING MORE. The band will next hit the road with BEARTOOTH in the spring and has just announced additional headline shows, which will take place throughout April and May.
"Defy" marked OF MICE & MEN's first full-length release without vocalist Austin Carlile, who left the group due to his ongoing battle with Marfan syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that afflicts the connective tissue holding the body's cells, organs and tissue together.
