Of Mice And Men Step Into The Mainstream With “Would You Still Be There”

A recent report from Billboard claimed that releases from Rise Records accounted for 5% of all rock music sales in 2014 so far. Five years ago that kind of headline would have been mind blowing, but these days it is not a stretch to believe such information as fact because the label has done a fantastic job of slowly evolving their sound while still catering to the audience that first propelled them into the spotlight. It’s a change that spreads across the label’s already diverse roster of talent, but it may have impacted no singular group greater than Of Mice …

UTG Exclusive: Producer Joey Sturgis Picks His 10 Favorite Projects

I am almost certain there has not been a single day in the last few years of this website where we have not discussed at least one artist who has producer Joey Sturgis to thank (at least in part) for their success. His work on The Devil Wears Prada’s first releases ushered in a new era for hard rock production, and to this day he continues to push the limits of music production whenever possible. He’s also expanded his horizons, including the launch of a plugin series based on his own work, but at the end of the day it …

Suicide Silence Release Clip From ‘Ending Is The Beginning’ Featuring Austin Carlile

Tragedy struck the Suicide Silence camp in 2012 with the death of vocalist Mitch Lucker following a motorcycle accident. To honor the singer’s memory, friends of the band and Lucker put together a memorial show, at which Suicide Silence performed with a number of prominent guest vocalists. The performance was filmed for an upcoming CD and DVD release titled Ending Is The Beginning, and you watch a new clip from the project, featuring Of Mice and Men frontman Austin Carlile, after the break.

Carlile joins the band for “OCD,” which originally appeared on Suicide Silence’s 2011 album, The Black

REVIEW: Of Mice & Men – Restoring Force

Artist: Of Mice & Men
Album: Restoring Force
Genre: Hard Rock
Label: Rise

In the years since The Flood, metalcore outfit Of Mice & Men have been evolving. From member changes, to influence and musical direction, the band has been taking steps towards being something more than just another ‘heavy band’ with a strong following of dedicated Hot Topic shoppers for some time. This transition may have seemed subtle, but if you trace the band’s sound from their early demos to now its alarmingly evident that they have their eyes set on much higher level of rock glory, and …

Of Mice & Men Debut “Bones Exposed”

Christmas music is pretty much everywhere you look these days, but Of Mice & Men are keeping things heavy with the release of a new track titled “Bones Exposed.”

The second song to surface off Of Mice & Men’s forthcoming album, “Bones Exposed” is a hard-hitting single that packs a powerful mix of sing/scream vocals into a riff-driven rock juggernaut that goes far beyond anything Of Mice & Men have delivered to date. The lyrics tell of a relationship on the rocks and the inability to move on until the other chooses to do the same, with a hook that …

SINGLE REVIEW: Of Mice & Men – “You’re Not Alone”

Artist: Of Mice & Men
Track: “You’re Not Alone”
Album: Restoring Force
Label: Rise Records

It is hard to believe over two years have passed since Of Mice & Men released The Flood. I cannot recall more than a handful of weeks in all that time the band wasn’t making headlines worldwide, and for that they certainly deserve some credit. The metalcore market is as crowded as its ever been, but for one reason or another Of Mice & Men have managed to captivate throngs of young music fans with an intensity unmatched by their genre peers, and in …

EXCLUSIVE: Austin Carlile Found Guilty Of Misdemeanor Assault

A month after being arrested for a late night brawl in Ohio, Of Mice And Men frontman Austin Carlile was in court this morning to learn what would come of the felonious assault charges facing him.

Carlile appeared at the Bowling Green Municipal Courthouse this morning at 9:30 AM to begin proceedings. We were unable to have a reporter on site, but a phone call with the courthouse has informed us the hearing was relatively short. Carlile’s original charge of felonious assault was lowered by the judge to a misdemeanor offense, and moments later Carlile was found guilty.

WATCH: ABC13 Reports On Austin Carlile’s Arrest

News that Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile was arrested in Bowling Green, Ohio over the weekend hit the internet yesterday morning and quickly caused quite a mess for fans and reporters alike. Since the date was April 1, otherwise known as April Fool’s Day, many believed the numerous reports to be false or misleading. Even when sites like UTG used court documents as sources, people were persistent that we had it wrong because neither Carlile nor his bandmates would comment on the situation. We thought such a situation might be aided by hearing the news from another trustworthy …
