Of Mice & Men reveal Contagious

Of Mice & Men

Of Mice & Men have revealed Contagious, the latest track from upcoming album Cold War.

The band’s fourth record arrives on September 9. Frontman Austin Carlile recently said of the creative process: “It was scary. One of the first lines I wrote in my notebook was, ‘Daunting task putting paper to pen, making myself vulnerable again’.

“But for people who haven’t heard our band, this is the record I’d want them to hear. From the six songs on there that are us yelling our faces off or the other five or six with Aaron Pauley and me singing, we’re letting out emotions that I’ve never put out on a record, ever.”

Of Mice & Men are the covers stars of issue 287 of Metal Hammer magazine, which is available now in print and via TeamRock+. Find out more about TeamRock+ and sign up here.

They launch a European tour next month – full dates below.
