Of Mice & Men tells us “How to Survive” with new song

Posted by on February 15, 2019

Of Mice & Men have premiered a new song “How to Survive.” It is the first piece of new music since their latest effort, 2018’s Defy. The track showcases the group’s heavier direction as vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley explained:

“‘How to Survive’ is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse. It’s for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It’s for the teenager who was told that they’ll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don’t matter to the world. It’s for the person who has been told that they’re worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It’s for the person who’s repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down.  This song is for them. This song is for me. I am them, and I’m still standing. So, turn it up. Feel the rage. If you, too, are that person, you will know it well, and it will greet you like an old friend.”
