Of Mice & Men announce new EP, drop heavy single Obsolete

Listen to Of Mice & Men’s crushing new song Obsolete, taken from their upcoming Timeless EP due out next month.

California metalcore crew Of Mice & Men are kicking off 2021 in style by signing to SharpTone Records, announcing an upcoming EP, and unveiling its crushing lead single Obsolete.

The band’s latest musical release – which is due out on February 26 – started life in a pre-COVID quarantine world, with vocalist Aaron Pauley explaining: There’s an old idiom about what you’re supposed to do when life gives you lemons. Sadly, to disappoint, this wasn’t exactly that. We started writing this EP shortly before the initial lockdowns in spring of 2020, before we knew that our world was about to become a radically different place.

A lot of these songs were born from a place of wondering how we’d fit into 2020 and beyond, both as adults in our 30s as well as a band that’s a decade into our existence.”

Of new tune Obsolete, meanwhile, he adds, It’s a song about questioning how future-proof one is in the grand scheme of things, and acknowledging that maybe we aren’t at all. I think we all wonder, to a certain extent, whether or not we’ll fit into the future, or how we would, or what that would look like. Obsolescence is very prevalent in our lives. We see how quickly old phones become virtually useless, how quickly fads and trends come and go. It’s all too easy to ponder about when you’ll become a covered wagon, or a flip phone, or MySpace.”
