Of Mice & Men launch live Instincts video

Of Mice & Men have released a video for their track Instincts.

The song features on the band’s latest album Defy, which launched in January via Rise Records – and is their first with bassist Aaron Pauley on lead vocals.

He says: “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!”

The video has been released to coincide with the news that Of Mice & Men will be touring with Bullet For My Valentine later this year on their Gravity tour.

Before they hit the road with Matt Tuck and co, Pauley, drummer Valentino Arteaga and guitarists Alan Ashby and Phil Manansala have a handful of live dates scheduled over the coming months and will play Belfast’s Mandela Hall tonight (April 30).
