Of Mice & Men Showcase Their Concert ‘Instincts’ in New Video
Of Mice & Men have successfully made the transition, with Aaron Pauley stepping into the primary vocal role over the past year and the lineup is as strong as ever. For those who haven't seen the band in its current and road-tested incarnation yet, their latest video gives you a glimpse of what that looks like. Check out the clip for "Instincts" above.
The Ben Anderson-directed video consists of live footage captured during their world tour. As Pauley states, "We're stoked to be releasing our music video for 'Instincts.' Filmed during our most recent trips to Australia and Japan, the video showcases the raw intensity that we've seen this song bring to crowds all over the world. When the idea for doing a video for the song came up, we collectively decided that the only way we could do it justice was to show this song's live power, and here it is. Turn it up, and bang your head!"
Of Mice & Men have gone deep on their Defy album, releasing "Unbreakable," "Back to Me," "Warzone" and the title track ahead of "Instincts." They also received some play from their cover of Pink Floyd's "Money" during this album and touring cycle.
The band is currently catching a breather from the touring they've been doing over the past year, but they won't be off the road for long. They've signed on to play a few shows with Five Finger Death Punch in late May, then have a trio of festival appearances in June and July, with more tour plans expected to be revealed shortly. See their current dates listed below.
