Of Mice & Men’s Aaron Pauley teases trilogy of EPs in 2021
Responding to a fan who was asking why the metalcore crew are opting for a shorter release over a full-length this year, the vocalist/bassist simply wrote: “3 EPs means new music all year!”
Perhaps the pair of follow-ups to Timeless were written in a post-COVID world, as Aaron previously stated that the band’s upcoming EP – which is due out on February 26 via SharpTone Records – was penned “before the initial lockdowns in spring of 2020”.
“There’s an old idiom about what you’re supposed to do when life gives you lemons,” he said. “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.”
