Tracks can be purchased individually or all together with the Of Mice & Men Pack 01.

The following descriptions are taken from the release notes:

Of Mice & Men Pack 01 is led by “Back To Me”, a single from their 2018 album Defy. The band’s fifth studio album continued a string of successes for the band and had strong showings on both the Billboard Top Hard Rock Album and Top Rock Album charts. “Back To Me” was initially released ahead of the album, and built up tons of excitement from fans. Led by a powerful guitar riff, “Back To Me” seamlessly moves between clean verses and heavy choruses, with big drums and riffage in spades. Vocalists will have plenty of fun with the harmonies, which feature the backing lines on a different part than the lead vocals.

We’ve also got “Second & Sebring” and “Those In Glass Houses”, both tracks from Of Mice & Men’s self-titled debut. The band signed to Rise Records off the strength of their demos, and it showed in this popular debut, reaching the top 10 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart. “Second & Sebring” goes hard, with screaming vocals alternating with clean, pounding drums, and a tough, quick guitar pattern. “Those In Glass Houses” is also a gauntlet, squeezing a challenge into a sub-3 minute track. Drum fills come hard and fast, kicks are constant, and guitar strumming changes throughout. All 3 of these tracks will test you, so be sure to get your warmups in before going into them.
