Of Mice & Men have shared a video for their new track, “Pain.”

The song is lifted from the band’s fourth studio LP, Cold World, scheduled for release on the 9th of September via Rise Records.

You can watch the promo clip for “Pain” below and receive an instant download of the track when you pre-order the new album here.

Of Mice & Men have previously revealed that Cold World will feature a contribution from a 14 year old fan named Cassy. The teenager has terminal brain cancer and her handclaps will be heard on the album.

Say OM&M: “The relationship and history between Cassy, Austin Carlile and the band has been a rich one over the years. Today was a much needed day for Cassy, her mom, cousin and family, as was it for all involved.

“Today was a day to forget all the stresses and problems of the world and to be surrounded by nothing but pure love, happiness and joy. Today Cassy was disease-free – today Cassy was ‘living the dream.'”

Cold World is produced by David Bendeth, who the band also worked with on previous album Restoring Force.

The track listing for Cold World is:

Of Mice and Men Cold World cover01. “Game of War”
02. “The Lie”

Watch Of Mice & Men’s video for new single “Broken Generation”

Of Mice & Men have released a video for their new single “Broken Generation”.

The new song is one of several available as part of the deluxe reissue of the band’s most recent album, Restoring Force: Full Circle, due out on the 23rd of February.

Speaking to Billboard about “Broken Generation”, OM&M drummer Tino Arteaga said recently: “The video is a metaphor for the current state of the Internet/technology-obsessed generation. As technology advances, life is lived out through LED screens instead of looking at the beauty in the world around us. This generation needs to begin taking action and ‘unplug’ instead of mindlessly entering data into computers.”
