Of Mice & Men Releases Music Video for “Instincts”

Of Mice & Men —vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Arteaga, and guitarist Phil Manansala— have released the video for “Instincts.” Watch it here.

“We’re stoked to be releasing our music video for ‘Instincts,'” said Pauley. “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 song appears on the band’s latest effort, Defy, out now through Rise Records

Defy was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Skillet, The All-American Rejects) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Rise Against).

Of Mice & Men previously released the explosive and unforgettable tracks “Warzone” and “Defy,” which followed the previous one-two punch of the singles “Unbreakable” and “Back to Me.” The band also released a well-received cover of Pink Floyd’s “Money.” Listen here.

“Defy delivers the sound fans have come to expect (big hooks, monster grooves and singalong melodies) while still breaking some new ground.” — Loudwire

“A lean beast of a record that gets right to the point; with huge choruses, monstrous riffs and plenty of opportunities to headbang.” —RockSound

“the album warrants attention for its melody, power, and pure catchiness — a new and satisfying lease on life.” — AllMusic
