Of Mice & Men’s new album, ‘Restoring Force,’ will arrive on Jan. 28

Of Mice & Men have been busy in the studio, putting the finishing touches on their upcoming, third studio album, and now, it’s almost ready. The band has announced the new release, titled “Restoring Force,” will reach stores and online outlets on Jan. 28.

According to singer Austin Carlile, the upcoming album will be an appropriate follow-up to Of Mice & Men’s 2011 release, “The Flood.”

“What happens after The Flood? You return to normal,” Carlile said in a statement. “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.”

“Restoring Force” is currently available for pre-order via the band’s official website. In addition to the standard album, “Restoring Force” is also available in some bundle packages, which offer autographed posters, exclusive merchandise, limited-edition vinyl LPs and other goodies.

In other band news, Of Mice & Men will embark on a North American tour next year alongside Bring Me the Horizon. The tour, billed “The American Dream Tour,” will kick off on Feb. 3 at The Plaza “Live” Theater in Orlando, Fla. To view the full list of upcoming shows, visit Of Mice & Men’s official website.
