Kicking off their signing to SharpTone Records the right way.
Today, the hard-hitting OF MICE & MEN announce their new EP, Timeless, marking their new venture with SharpTone Records. Timeless, which arrives on February 26th, comes visualized by renowned artist Derek Hess, presenting itself with simplicity despite being stacked with depth and multi-layered lyricism reflective of our current existence. To prepare audiences for the release, the band share their lead single Obsolete alongside a wondrously animated video by Nova Entertainment that brings Derek Hess' artwork to life.
Band frontman Aaron Pauley comments on the EP:
"There's an old idiom about what you're supposed to do when life gives you lemons. Sadly, to disappoint, this wasn't exactly that. We started writing this EP shortly before the initial lockdowns in spring of 2020, before we knew that our world was about to become a radically different place. A lot of these songs were born from a place of wondering how we'd fit into 2020 and beyond, both as adults in our 30s as well as a band that's a decade into our existence."
Pauley regarding the single:
"It's a song about questioning how future-proof one is in the grand scheme of things, and acknowledging that maybe we aren't at all. I think we all wonder, to a certain extent, whether or not we'll fit into the future, or how we would, or what that would look like. Obsolescence is very prevalent in our lives. We see how quickly old phones become virtually useless, how quickly fads and trends come and go. It's all too easy to ponder about when you'll become a covered wagon, or a flip phone, or Myspace."
