Next week, Of Mice & Men will join Bring Me The Horizon for ‘The American Dream Tour’ – an extensive run of North American dates that will kick off on Monday, February 3rd in Orlando, FL and wrap up on March 28th in San Diego, CA. Tickets for the tour are on-sale now. See below for the complete list of dates.
Restoring Force is the follow up to The Flood, which was originally released on June 14, 2011 and received a re-release on July 24, 2012 and included four new tracks. The Flood debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was hailed by the New York Times as “one of the year’s most bruising rock debuts.” Alternative Press called the album a “genuine statement of artistic purpose.” Rock Sound declared the release “a truly memorable, hip-shaking face-breaker of epic proportions.” To this date, The Flood has sold over 125,000 copies and has been streamed nearly 16,000,000 times on YouTube, making it one of the most successful release in Rise Records’ 22 years of operation. The band has brought their memorable live show to audiences around the world having sold out multiple headlining tours domestically and internationally.
Of Mice & Men is Austin Carlile (vocals), Alan Ashby (guitar), Valentino Arteaga (drums), Aaron Pauley (vocals / bass) and Phil Manansala (guitar).
