Of Mice & Men have premiered the title track from their forthcoming album Defy.
Talking about the new single, front man Aaron Pauley says, “To defy means to challenge the power of; to resist boldly or openly. Our song Defy is all about digging your heels in and being defiant towards the feelings of hopelessness, and defining yourself in the process”.
The single lays the foundations for one of 2018’s most anxiously awaited rock albums, which will be released by Rise Records on 19 January and can be pre-ordered here
The album comes after months of anticipation from the band’s loyal legion of worldwide fans and was produced by Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Skillet and The All-American Rejects] and mixed by Chris Lord Alge [Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown and Rise Against].
Of Mice & Men have previously teased the album with the singles Back to me, Unbreakable and Warzone. These three songs have collectively clocked over 7 million Spotify streams and over 5 million YouTube views in less than six months. You can watch the videos here:
