Of Mice & Men today announced that their third studio album Restoring Force will be released on January 27th on Rise Records. The album is the follow up to the band's 2011's acclaimed release The Flood, which solidified the California-based five-piece as a leading force in modern heavy music. Restoring Force was recorded at House of Loud in New Jersey and produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach, A Day To Remember, Breaking Benjamin).
"What happens after a disaster? What happens after The Flood?" asks the band's frontman Austin Carlile. "You return to normal. You find balance again. That's what we felt like we were doing with this album. We wanted this record to bring equilibrium back to our band and music. We're letting everyone know that we're here to stay. We're Restoring Force."
Today the band also unveiled various Restoring Force pre-order bundles, including limited edition items such as a shell shaped pewter pendant necklace, autographed promotional posters, limited edition colored 12 inch LPs, and more.
The band are also proud to announce that they will be back on UK shores next April with fellow Rise family members, Issues as main support and Beartooth will open.
