OF MICE & MEN announce new EP 'Bloom' + share lead single

Continuing their ongoing hot-streak with an emotional barrage.


Following the release of their hard-hitting Timeless EP in February, OF MICE & MEN are back at it again with another brief collection of hymns. This time, they take the shape of the Derek Hess-illustrated Bloom, which arrives on May 28th via SharpTone Records. Like the predecessor, Bloom wears its heart on its sleeves and sports yet another soaring vocal performance by Aaron Pauley. Bloom and Timeless are set to comprise the band's next full-length recording.

Frontman Aaron Pauley comments on today's arrival of the title track:

"'Bloom' is a song about grieving the death of a family member. It's about understanding, through that loss, that grief is not only love in its most visceral and wildest form, but that it's also the ultimate price we pay to experience such love. To know profound grief is to have known profound love. Nothing and no one lasts forever. Love isn't a bouquet of plastic flowers; it's watching the petals fall."
